VeilleNanos - Applications



The uses of nanomaterials can be very different and concern many fields of application: food, cosmetics, clothing and textiles, household appliances, electronic and digital (screens), sports equipment, glass and construction materials, aeronautics, cars (bodywork, paints, windows, tires, fuels, …), boats, etc.

As thelabelling obligation is currently only valid for a few product categories(cosmetics, biocides and food), with a very poor implementation, it is very difficult today to know if a specific product contains nanomaterials.


The few existing inventories and censuses can be consulted to try to get an idea of the types of products involved, but unfortunately they do not provide solid, accurate and/or up-to-date information.

That is why we invite you to support our work to obtain more transparent information, through product testing, advocacy for the generalization oflabeling [nano] and reliable and publicly accessible registers: theimprovement of the r-nano register and the establishment ofa European register are among our priorities!

Our monitoring, information and actions need you to continue !
