Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

The European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) has created a web page for the Nanomaterials Expert Group (NMEP), which was created in October 2012.  NMEP aims to seek common ground among experts on scientific and technical issues regarding the implementation of the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) regulation, the Classification, Labeling, and Packaging (CLP) regulation, and the Biocidal Products Regulation (BPR) for nanomaterials.  ECHA states that the page includes information on NMEP’s mandate and activities, the list of the members, and the meeting schedule, which will also include the minutes of the meetings in the future.  According to the web page, NMEP will meet May 16-17, 2017, and November 7-8, 2017.
