The NANEX project will have the following objectives:

 

  1. To describe generic requirements for the development of exposure scenarios for MNMs.
  2. To collect and review exposure data, exposure metrics, risk management measures and existing models for the development of occupational exposure scenarios for HARNs, mass-produced MNMs and specialised MNMs.
  3. To collect and review exposure data, exposure metrics, risk management measures, and existing models for the development of consumer exposure scenarios for HARNs, mass-produced MNMs and specialised MNMs.
  4. To collect and review data on environmental release, risk management measures, and existing models for estimating environmental release and exposure during the various life cycle stages of MNMs for HARNs, mass-produced MNMs and specialised MNMs.
  5. To carry out a number of case illustrations collecting, in the context of REACH, detailed exposure information for occupational, consumer and environmental release/exposure scenarios for specific MNMs (HARNs, mass-produced MNMs and/or specialised MNMs).
  6. To develop a catalogue database containing generic and specific exposure scenarios based on information collected during the project.
  7. To identify gaps in knowledge/regulation/standardisation with respect to development of exposure scenarios for REACH, exposure assessment and risk management measures and define research needs for occupational, consumer and environmental release/exposure scenarios.
  8. To disseminate information to stakeholders.
