The NANoREG project: 'A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials', funded by the European Union's 7th Framework Programme, under grant agreement nr. 310584 (http://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/107159_en.html) produced two major project outputs: the NANoREG Framework and the NANoREG Toolbox for the Safety Assessment of Nanomaterials. The Toolbox supports the implementation of the Framework by providing an overview of available tools (test methods, datasets, models, guidance documents, decision trees, etc.) useful to regulators and other stakeholders in the European REACH context. In this dataset, these tools and the purpose, type, regulatory acceptability status and access information of as well as other metadata about each tool are recorded. The two separate files of the dataset cover presently available (Toolbox) and upcoming tools (Prospective tools).

The present document has been developed within the NANoREG project: "A common European approach to the regulatory testing of nanomaterials", funded by the European Union's 7th Framework Programme, under grant agreement n° 310584 (http://cordis.europa.eu/project/rcn/107159_en.html ). This report disseminates the NANoREG framework for the safety assessment of nanomaterials, which has been developed within the project via a collective effort of several partners and is supported by a NANoREG-wide consensus. The NANoREG framework is the project attempt at bringing common understanding in the field of environmental health and safety (EHS) assessment of nanomaterials under the current European regulatory framework focused on REACH. It contributes to the on-going debate on the need to facilitate the implementation of REACH for nanomaterials. It elaborates on the further development, testing and validation of forward-looking approaches, such as Safe-by-Design, a Nanospecific Prioritisation and Risk Assessment and Life Cycle Assessment. The NANoREG partners, including JRC, believe in the usefulness of this framework for scientific experts, regulatory authorities and industry. JRC, as task leader, has coordinated the drafting process. It has edited and published here the document.

Legislation addressing environmental, health and safety aspects of nanomaterials in consumer products and ensuring their safe use is being continuously updated in the European Union and globally. This leads to a growing need for tools to implement this developing legislation. A freely accessible inventory of ready-to-use and publicly available tools that together cover the tasks within a nanomaterial safety assessment process was built in the presented work. This inventory is a unique metadata set in Excel® format: the 'NANoREG Toolbox', which assembles information needed for selecting and accessing instruments that meet specific goals. The recorded tools are categorised according to their purpose, type and regulatory status. The Toolbox covers an unprecedented and broad range of over 500 current tools, developed in Europe and beyond. While NANoREG focussed on safety assessment under the EU Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals(REACH), the instruments in the Toolbox are relevant and useful for nanomaterial safety assessments worldwide.
