VeilleNanos - Applications

Applications

Nanomaterials can be used in many different ways and concern many fields of application: food, cosmetics, clothing and textiles, household appliances, electronics and digital (screens), sports equipment, glass and construction materials, aeronautics, cars (bodywork, paints, windows, tires, fuels, …), boats, armament & defense, etc.

As the labeling obligation is currently only valid for a few product categories (cosmetics, biocides and food) and its implementation is poorly respected, it is very difficult today to know if a specific product contains nanomaterials.

 

The few available inventories that can be consulted to try to get an idea of the types of products involved 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 of [nano] labeling and reliable and publicly accessible registers: the improvement of the r-nano register and the establishment of a European register are among our priorities.
