The 'REACHnano' project aimed to provide the industry and stakeholders with easy-to-use tools to support the risk assessment of nanomaterials along their lifecycle. It thus seeks to support the implementation of the REACH regulation with regard to nanomaterials and ultimately improve the protection of the environment and human health from risk.


The overall Purpose of the developed REACHnano Helpdesk, available from the website of the project, is to provide the industry with an efficient, innovative and user-friendly set of tools that will help the nanomaterials producers and downstream users to comply the EC regulation 1907/2006 REACH. It was designed on the basis of the requirements and opinions of the target audience of the project, including small and medium sizd enterprises (SME), large companies, and research organizations dealing with subtances at the nanometer range. 

One of the main outcomes of the project was a web-based toolkit, available for free to all European stakeholders, the REACHnano Toolkit
