In Denmark, the national regulation to establish a register of nanomaterials has entered into effect (see Food Contact World 1.13, 16 July 2013).
Companies that employ nanomaterials in products that are not in an exempted class must file a first report by 30 August 2015 via an online portal. This will cover use over the 12 months from 20 June 2014 to 20 June 2015, so record keeping activities will have to begin immediately. Details of the submissions, though not the documents themselves, will then be published in an annual report by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency.
Food contact materials and containers, medicines, and cosmetics are all in exempted classes ,which will limit the impact of the law.
