The EFLA workshop dedicated to Questions around national provisions: the case of nano labelling rules and titanium dioxide ban in France took place in Brussels on 12th December 2018.At the workshop participants were presented with an overview of the difficulties concerning detection of nanomaterials in foods by Dr Jan Mast, Head of Service Trace Elements and Nanomaterials at Sciensano (Belgium). In addition, we welcomed Dr Jacques-Aurélien Sergent, Corporate Product Safety Toxicologist at Solvay, presenting the industry perspective on nanomaterials including the aspects of their labelling and the titanium dioxide ban in France.
