The Netherlands National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM) has developed a concept of a new electronic tool that could be used for the risk assessment of nanomaterials in cosmetics.

The Dutch research institute published details of this in a new report , commissioned by the Netherlands Food and Consumer Product Safety Authority (NVWA), describing the content of a proposed electronic ‘NanoCosmetics’ tool.

It states that the outcome of the risk assessment is important as it indicates whether measures need to be taken to mitigate and/or reduce the observed risks.
