Search for nanomaterials

The new ECHA CHEM database has been released by ECHA. See for more information on the transition to ECHA CHEM.  More

Nanomaterials data shown here derives from the REACH registration data on the current Dissemination Platform, which is no longer maintained; it remains frozen as of 19th May 2023. Up-to-date REACH registration data is published only on ECHA CHEM. Unfortunately, there is no possibility to connect that data to this portal, nor for the time being to allow searches in ECHA CHEM by nanomaterials properties or inventories.

We appreciate your understanding during this transition period.
