Summary

At the 6th meeting of the WPMN (October 2009), the operational plans 2009-2012 for eight projects were proposed and discussed. This document compiles the operational plans, which include information on their respective objectives, expected outputs, and linkages with other OECD bodies and other activities. Below you will find an outline of each project:

1. OECD Database on Manufactured Nanomaterials to Inform and Analyse EHS Research Activities;

2. Safety Testing of Representative Set of Manufactured Nanomaterials;

3. Manufactured Nanomaterials and Test Guidelines;

4. Co-operation on Voluntary Schemes and Regulatory Programmes;

5. Co-operation on Risk Assessment;

6. The Role of Alternative Test Methods in Nanotoxicology;

7. Co-operation on Exposure Measurement and Exposure Mitigation;

8. Environmentally Sustainable Use of Manufactured Nanomaterials.
