On March 26, 2018, the Swedish National Platform for Nanosafety (SweNanoSafe) launched a new website intended to facilitate communication and knowledge exchange on the safety aspects of nanomaterials.  According to the press release, the website is targeted toward regulators, scientists, industry, non-governmental organizations, and other stakeholders interested in nanotechnology.  The website provides information on how nanomaterials are regulated in various areas, including work environment, chemicals, and cosmetics.  It also contains information about research on the environmental, health, and safety aspects of nanomaterials.  The website includes a knowledge bank, questions and answers, a calendar, and links to other sources of nanosafety information.  The press release states that the website “is an important part of Swetox commission from the Swedish government to create a national platform for nanosafety.  The site has been developed, and will continue to be developed, in collaboration with the SweNanoSafe Cooperation Council and Expert Panel.”
