Summary

At the 5th meeting of the OECD Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN), it was agreed to hold an OECD Workshop on Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials in a Regulatory Context. The objectives of the workshop were: i) to obtain expert input into the critical issues specific for the risk assessment of manufactured nanomaterials in a regulatory context; ii) to identify possible approaches for risk assessment based on the current state of knowledge; and iii) to identify issues which may be addressed through the sponsorship programme.

This document is the report of the workshop took place September 16th – 18th, 2009 in Washington D.C., United States, and was cohosted by the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC) and the Society for Risk Analysis. Seventy (70) participants representing OECD member countries, non-member economies, industries, academia and environmental NGOs attended. Following general presentations and discussions, case studies on Titanium dioxide nanomaterials, Silver Nanomaterials and Carbon Nanotubes were presented. Workshop attendees then participated in one of five parallel break-out sessions to discuss specific issues of risk assessment methodology including i) Assessment Problem Formulation; ii) Exposure – Public, Occupational and Environment; iii) Hazard – Human Health; iv) Ecological Toxicity and Fate; and v) Determining Risk and Linkage between Assessment and Management. This report includes a summary conclusion of the discussion as well as the presentations that were given.
