Summary

This document is intended to provide information on the outcomes and developments of the WPMN related to the safety of manufactured nanomaterials.

The project on Co-operation on Voluntary Schemes and Regulatory Programmes was established to achieve two objectives with respect to information gathering schemes:

- To identify common elements of the various information gathering initiatives, in place or planned, which encourage industry and other entities to submit existing information and data and/or generate new data on risk assessment and risk management of nanomaterials; and

- To develop considerations and recommendations for approaches and elements to implement effective information gathering schemes.

This document is the analysis of current and proposed information gathering initiatives for manufactured nanomaterials (Section I). It includes a number of considerations and recommendations which should be considered in developing an information gathering initiative. The document also includes a table which compares current information gathering schemes (Section II). Information provided through this table served as a basis of the analysis of information gathering initiatives. In addition, the table was further updated with inputs from Canada, Germany and the United States. These updates were no longer considered by the analysis.

It is expected that the Table of Comparison (Section II) be updated when new information on current or additional initiatives become available.
