In a survey conducted in co-operation with the German Association of Chemical Industry (VCI) 3 years ago, a first overview on activities with nanomaterials at workplaces in Germany has been obtained. The follow-up survey, additionally supported by the Federation of German Industries (BDI), will focus beyond production plants on the whole scale of industrial handling of nanomaterials. The results should allow stakeholders in occupational safety and health targeted actions in compliance with the EU precautionary principle and offer a basis for impact assessment of regulatory activities.
