Report Title: Amendments 1-110
Report ID: 441
Date: 3/3/2009
Author: Carl Schlyter, Reporter
Report Type: Legislation
URL: [771661en.pdf]
Country: European Union
Organization: Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety
Summary: In January 2009, the European Parliament Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety published its draft report (report ID 74) on the regulatory aspects of nanomaterials, calling for extensive changes to the regulatory framework and a review of all legislation by the end of 2009. This document contains the 110 motions for amendment received following the publication of the draft report. Most amendments sought to expound unclear phrases of the draft report, or to soften harsh language which criticized current legislation and Commission actions. Of these proposed amendments, the Committee subsequently compromised on the adoption of thirty-five, which can be found in the subsequent document “Compromise and Consolidated Amendments 1-35” (report ID 192).

Report Title: Compromise and Consolidated Amendments 1-35
Report ID: 192
Date: 3/30/2009
Author: Carl Schlyter
Report Type: Legislation
URL: [778360en.pdf]
Country: European Union
Organization: Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety
Summary: The European Parliaments Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety has voted to amend and adopt its report, Report on the regulatory aspects of nanomaterials. This report was previously published in draft form in January 2009. This document contains both the original text and the text as adopted. The newly amended report calls for increased research into environmental, health, and safety aspects of nanomaterials throughout their life cycle, the introduction of a comprehensive definition of nanotechnology, and the adoption of a harmonized definition of nanomaterials. It emphasizes that the EUs concept of a safe, responsible, and integrated approach to nanotechnology is jeopardized by the lack of safety information for nanomaterial-containing products already on the market. The amended report strongly supports the no data, no market principle and calls for legislation to be reviewed within two years to implement this approach.

Report Title: Report on the Proposal for a Regulation of the European Parliament and of the Council on Novel Foods and Amending Regulation (EC) No Xxx/xxxx
Report ID: 138
Date: 12/18/2008
Author: Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety
Report Type: Committee Report
URL: [getDoc.do]
Country: European Union
Organization: Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety
Summary: This document reports on an EU proposal to modify the procedures for the authorization of novel foods in the EU market. Regulation (EC) No 258/97 regulates procedures for the approval of novel foods. These foods may be derived from cloned animals or produced using nanotechnology, among other methods. This document contains the text of the proposed amendments, an explanatory statement, and committee opinions on the proposal. The proposed changes are intended to primarily attain a high level of food safety while simplifying and centralizing the procedures. Novel food applications will be submitted to the Commission and pursuant to their compliance with the proposed regulations, and then forwarded to the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) for assessment, including ethical and environmental concerns.



Report Title: Draft Report on regulatory aspects of nanomaterials
Report ID: 74
Date: 1/19/2009
Author: Carl Schlyter, Reporter
Report Type: Draft Report
URL: [getDoc.do]
Country: European Union
Organization: Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety
Summary: This draft report contains several provisions that will help create a regulatory framework that fully addresses potential safety problems relating to nanomaterials. Current legislation is insufficient for such regulation, namely because it is devoid of any nano-specific provisions and is not derived from the appropriate data and methods to assess the risks relating to nanomaterials. This is far from the "safe and integrated approach" to nanotechnologies advocated by the Commission. Therefore, the European Parliament has issued this draft report calling for extensive changes within the current regulatory framework. Proposals include having the Commission review all relevant legislation by the end of 2009 (such review is not only necessary to adequately protect human health and the environment, but also to provide certainty and predictability to economic operators as well as public confidence), ensuring that all consumer products containing nanomaterials should be labeled, and limiting potential patent rights to specific applications or production methods of nanomaterials in order to avoid stifling innovation.
