Norwegian Government Agency makes Submission of Information on Nanoscale Substances mandatory

The Norwegian Climate and Pollution Agency (Klif) has changed the information requirements for chemicals registered with the Norwegian Product Register. It states that ‘information about substances in nano form must be given’. This news comes as the agency sends out letters requesting registrants to do their annual update of chemical information.

The register this year contains a NANO box, which ‘should be marked if the chemical contains nanomaterials’. Respondents will also need to ‘identify which constituent [it is] that is in the nanoform’. Furthermore during the course of 2013 registrants ‘will have to update the composition for all your mandatorily declared chemicals that contain substances in nanoform’.

Information must be returned to Klif by 8 February 2013.
