In the recent years, countries around the globe have been building up regulatory frameworks for nanomaterials. While mainly focused on the collection of information and on the provision of information to the consumer, these frameworks have also addressed the issue of the end-of-life and of waste management for nanomaterials.
This presentation by Guillaume Flament will provide you with an overview of the schemes in place in Europe and in the United States, of their divergences and of their approach to issues linked to the use of nanotechnology. The program will first contextualize the issue with a description of terminology and concepts.
You will learn about standardization in the field of nanotechnologies that includes either or both of the following:
Specific tasks include developing standards for: terminology and nomenclature; metrology and instrumentation, including specifications for reference materials; test methodologies; modeling and simulations; and science-based health, safety, and environmental practices.
In this program, you will learn how nanomaterials fit in:
