France issues reminder to submit nanomaterials report
The French Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development posted a January 8, 2013, memorandum concerning the annual mandatory reporting of nanomaterials, which took effect January 1, 2013.
Under Decree No. 2012-232, companies that manufacture, import, and/or distribute a "substance with nanoparticle status" in an amount of at least 100 grams per year must submit an annual report with substance identity, quantity, and use information. The report will be due by May 1 for information about nanoparticle substances produced/imported/distributed during the prior year.
A report containing 2012 data will be due by May 1, 2013.
The January 8, 2013, memorandum includes a link to a new website for reporting, as well as a link to a frequently asked questions and answers document (both in French). See http://www.r-nano.fr/ and http://www.developpement-durable.gouv.fr/IMG/pdf/FAQ_17122012-2.pdf
