Responsible Production and Use of Nanomaterials

The VCI issues guidance for manufacturers and customers, in order to enhance the responsible production and use of nanomaterials.

The German Chemical Industry is committed to a responsible production and use of nanomaterials.

To support member companies, and customer companies in the value chain, to manage the health, safety and environmental aspects of nanomaterials throughout the life cycle, the German Chemical Industry Association VCI has issued a series of documents. They provide guidance on all aspects of a good product stewardship on nanomaterials.
