Danish EPA Assesses Administrative Burdens of Nano Product Register

Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

On January 12, 2016, the Danish Environmental Protection Agency (Danish EPA) posted a report entitled Assessment of the administrative burdens on businesses with a reporting obligation to the Danish Nanoproductregister.  Danish EPA estimated the administrative burden of businesses reporting to the Danish nano product register using the standard cost method.  According to Danish EPA, interviews with companies and industry associations contributed to estimates for the measurement of administrative burdens, and provided input to the evaluation of corporate barriers experienced by the first submitters to the register.  Danish EPA states that the interviews also contributed “to the experience and learning inputs relative to improvement opportunities and other models for mapping and provision of knowledge about nanomaterials in products.”
