International Alliance for NanoEHS Harmonization (IANH)


The launch of the International Alliance for NanoEHS* Harmonization (IANH) was announced at the Nanotox 2008 Conference in Zurich on the 9th of September. According to its website, “the International Alliance for NanoEHS Harmonization is an interdisciplinary alliance of scientific experts, themselves currently active in all aspects of this arena, drawn from Europe, Japan and the United States that seeks to establish reproducible approaches for the study of nanoparticle hazard“. More specifically, the goals are to 1) establish in vitro and in vivo nanomaterial NanoEHS testing protocols that are validated to produce the same results in multiple laboratories internationally and 2) identify nanoEHS in vitro testing protocols that correlate with results in animal test and may be predictive of in vivo effects.
