GUIDEnano is a European research project funded under the 7th Framework programme developing a web-based guidance tool, which will help the nano-enabled products users to design and apply of the most appropriate risk assessment and mitigation strategy for a specific product.
GUIDEnano will provide a Tool to be used by industry with the aim to complement existing regulations in different frameworks.
By using this Tool, industry will be able to evaluate and efficiently mitigate possible health risks for workers, consumers and the environment associated to the use of nanotechnologies.
The report generated by the GUIDEnano Tool will be designed to ensure transparency of the process and facilitate communication and acceptance of the Tool outcome by regulatory agencies, occupational safety and health agents, insurance companies, and consumer protection associations.
LATI Industria Termoplastici S.p.A. is proud to be part of this International consortium with top level universities, qualified research institutes as well as important industrial partners.
