Joint PATROLS-GRACIOUS-NanoSafety Cluster event on harmonization of Standard Operating Procedures

29.06.2018

On the 12th and 13th of June 2018, a joint workshop on harmonization of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) was held at RIVM, the Netherlands. This activity was part of the Nanosafety Cluster (Working Group C) and was sponsored by the EU projects PATROLS and GRACIOUS. It was organized to follow-up on the EU ProSafe ‘White Paper’ recommendation to come up with harmonised and validated test methods for nanomaterials to support regulatory risk assessment. Such SOPs are required to facilitate the generation of data that are reliable and comparable, and thus can be used and re-used for risk assessment and modelling the effects of nanomaterials.
