Report Title: Legal Appraisal Of Nano Technologies
Report ID: 498
Date: 12/12/2008
Report Type: General Report
URL: [3198.pdf]
Country: Germany
Organization: Federal Environment Agency (UBA)
Summary: This report, conducted by the German Federal Environment Agency (UBA) in conjunction with universities, seeks to appraise the current nanotechnology legislation. The report aims to identify gaps in legislation at the German and EU level, point out possible regulatory approaches, and to formulate recommendations for further regulatory action. In German national law, the Federal Immission Control Act (BlmSchG) controls the production and industrial use of nanomaterials as part of a comprehensive industrial regulation. Marketing is regulated under the German Chemicals Act, which aims for the identification of substance-related risks and draws a distinction between naturally occurring substances and manufactured substances (such as nanoparticles). Nanoparticles may either be treated as existing substances subject to current regulations or as new substances under EU Directive 67/548/EEC. Regulations on transport, use, and disposal also show regulatory gaps which must be addressed.

Report Title: Nanotechnology for Mankind and Environment - Seize Upon Opportunities, Reduce Risks; Federal Environment Agency With Information on Environmental Aspects
Report ID: 412
Date: 10/12/2009
Author: Martin Ittershagen
Report Type: Press Release
URL: [pe09-075_nanotechnology_for_mankind_and_envir.....]
Country: Germany
Organization: Federal Environment Agency (UBA)
Summary: Nanotechnology is playing an ever greater role in the development of new products and applications. The rising use of synthetic nanomaterials in products, however, also leads to their increased input to the environmental media soil, water and air. There is as yet too little knowledge about the impact of nanomaterials on the environment and their potential health risks for humans. In response to this ignorance, the Federal Environment Agency (UBA) presents a background paper regarding relevant aspects of nanotechnology’s potential impacts on the environment. This includes identification of risks posed to mankind and the environment and recommendations for action. Among these recommendations are that any use of products that contain or might release nanomaterials should be avoided if at all possible as long as their effect on mankind and the environment is largely unknown. The UBA additionally maintains that there must a legal framework to ensure safe handling of nanomaterials, starting with a reporting system for nanomaterials in the form of a product directory.

Report Title: Nanotechnology: Opportunities and Risks for Humans and the Environment
Report ID: 385
Date: 8/1/2006
Report Type: Fact Finding Report
URL: [Nanotechnology%20Opportunities%20and%20Risks%.....]
Country: Germany
Organization: Federal Environment Agency (UBA)
Summary: Based on the available literature data, it has been assumed by the UBA that in the decades to come, nanotechnology will have a strong influence on essential industries such as the automotive, chemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as mechanical engineering, medicine, biotechnology and environmental engineering, and that it has a potential for fundamentally changing whole fields of technology. The Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) and the European Commission have responded to this in recent years by supporting a number of research projects. The UBA itself is determined to promote nanotechnology and needs more in-depth information. Specifically, nanotechnological methods and products have to be evaluated as to their advantages for the environment as compared to conventional alternatives, and the implications and possible risks of this very dynamic technology need to be identified and assessed such risks. Therefore, a research program has been proposed to the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) by the UBA in cooperation with other institutions. In addition, a study dedicated to the clarification of open questions has been commissioned to provide support for the UBA in the development of possible regulatory measures.
