Abstract: Under the JRC's leadership and in the frame of the EU-funded FP7 flagship project NANoREG, a team of experts in different fields (physical-chemistry, in vivo and in vitro toxicology) has produced a set of easy-to-use templates aimed at harmonising the logging of experimentally-produced data in the field of nano- environmental, health and safety (nanoEHS). The templates are freely available to the nanoEHS community (Common Creative Licence – Share alike) as jump start towards the harmonisation, sharing and linking of data, with the purpose of bringing benefits to the data management at European level and beyond. They have a common first part to identify the sample under investigation; a second part aimed at recording basic information on the dispersion method adopted and to record the essential parameters used to fully describe an assay (the experimental settings); and a third one to log the experimental results. The experimental parameters, their values, together with the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) linked to a given template, allow to critically evaluate and/or to compare the results of a given assay performed in different laboratories. This approach should also allow reproducing the assay at a later stage. The structure adopted for the templates tries to reflect the ISA-TAB logic, already widely used in 'omics' studies.
