Event Description

Learn About Standardization in the Field of Nanotechnologies and Regulatory Framework in the U.S. and EU

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:

  • Understanding and control of matter and processes at the nanoscale, typically, but not exclusively, below 100 nanometres in one or more dimensions where the onset of size-dependent phenomena usually enables novel applications.
  • Utilizing the properties of nanoscale materials that differ from the properties of individual atoms, molecules, and bulk matter, to create improved materials, devices, and systems that exploit these new properties.

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:

  • The general waste management principles
  • The regulatory framework in the EU
  • The regulatory framework in the US
  • Standardization

  • Public and regulatory affairs personnel
  • Product safety directors
  • Waste managers
  • OHS Directors
  • Lawyers
  • Risk Assessors
  • Regulatory Affairs Manager
  • Scientific Officers
  • Materials Manager
