Research and Development of Nanoparticle Characterization Methods (P06041), a research project under the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO), was launched in June 2006. The research project had dealt with risk assessments of manufactured nanomaterials in Japan and was completed on February 28, 2011. As a result, reports on the risk assessment of three nanomaterials (Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials -Titanium Dioxide-, Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials -Fullerene-, Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials -Carbon Nanotubes-) in addition to a report Risk Assessment of Manufactured Nanomaterials: Overview of Approaches and Results (abbreviation “Approaches”) were developed and published. An Executive Summary (in English and Japanese) was also authored in addition to the full text report of each nanomaterial, which we hope will be useful.
