The Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management secretariat is seeking input from stakeholders by May 1 for a forthcoming report on nanotechnologies and manufactured nanomaterials, which will focus in particular on issues relevant to developing countries and countries with economies in transition. The report will contain 10 sections, including beneficial uses of nanomaterials for health and the environment, economic and social impact, and work of international organizations. A section on risk assessment and management will focus on seven subtopics, including material characterization and risk management across the life cycle. The SAICM secretariat plans to prepare a report based on the input it receives for consideration at the Open-ended Working Group meeting, scheduled for August 29 - Sept. 2 in Belgrade, Serbia. In its second session, the International Conference on Chemicals Management established the working group to consider the implementation, development and enhancement of the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management.
