South Korea Recommends Formation of Separate Consortiums for Nanomaterial Registration under K-REACH

South Korea follows the definition of nanomaterials under EU REACH and recommends formation of separate consortiums for nanomaterial registration as there are significant differences in the hazardous properties of substances in nanoparticle form. Guidance on nanomaterial registration will be developed after analysis of findings derived from a nanomaterial registration pilot program. The function of forming separate consortiums or nanomaterials has been designed on the CICO platform.

Nanomaterials have been earmarked for special attention by South Korean policymakers due to their widespread use. South Korea’s MoE has advised companies to form separate consortiums during registration of a nanomaterial (see MoE’s notice) as the hazardous properties of a chemical can vary dramatically in nanoparticle form.
