On December 5, 2017, the Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) informed that the Swedish Chemicals Agency (KEMI) published new rules requiring companies to submit data on nanomaterials to KEMI’s products register. The rules will enter into force on January 1, 2018 and companies need to provide data for products on the Swedish market in 2018 by February 2019. In this manner, KEMI aims to collect information about the amount and type of nanomaterials used in Sweden. The rules are introduced in KEMI’s new basic regulations on chemical products and biotechnological organisms (KIFS 2017:7), which will replace the previous regulations (KIFS 2008:2) in January 2018.
