This guideline on recommended measures and controls for mitigating and control the risk posed by ENMs addresses research institutions, SME industries and large companies, providing recommendations for good occupational health and safety measures following a precautionary approach.

Evidence based data on the effectiveness and performance on current Risk Management Measures (RMMs), including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and technical controls such as Local Exhaustive Ventilation (LEV) systems, against ENMs is a key issue to guarantee a high level of protection for human health and the environment.

This guideline has been designed and developed taking into account the special needs of the nanotechnology related industry, as well as the requirements laid down on the Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH). The members of the consortium defined the structure of the guidance, covering those aspects considered of special relevance to help to ensure that the risk associated with ENMs and NM-enabled products have been appropriately evaluated and mitigated to an acceptable level.
