In the framework of the European Commission Mandate M/461 to CEN, CENELEC and ETSI  for Standardization activities regarding nanotechnologies and nanomaterials, a call for tenders has been launched by CEN/TC 137 “Assessment of workplace exposure to chemical and biological agents” .

PEROSH partners CIOP, HSL, NRCWE, TNO, INRS together with IGF (Institute for the Research on Hazardous Substances)  were selected to carry out the work for the publication of European Standards on “Measurement of dustiness of bulk nanomaterials”.

The work will consist of a prenormative research phase and of elaboration of five European standards. In the research phase four different measurement methods of dustiness of bulk nanomaterials will be evaluated and adjusted.  One of the European standards will deal with general guidance and requirements and four standards will specify these methods.

To start this 65 month project, a kick off meeting took place at INRS Paris on 29 and 30 April 2013.
