Potential Regulations Specific to Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials are A Subject of Speculation. What is the Approach of US Authorities?

Many countries have launched mandatory reporting schemes concerning nanomaterials, others are contemplating about the pros and cons of doing so, and nearly all industrial countries are in the process of policy development that are specifically concerned with what the potential risks of nanomaterials could be. This presentation by expert speaker Steffi Friedrichs will provide you with an overview of the background and status of the regulatory debate surrounding nanotechnology and nanomaterials: should there by a nano-specific regultion/legislation that mandates the notification of all nanomaterials (and their products)?

Starting with the background of the whole debate, the presentation will further provide an overview of its developments across the globe with particular emphasis on the US Market, answering questions such as:

  • How do US authorities such as EPA and FDA approach the discussion of potential nano-specific regulation?
  • What do industries need to be prepared for?
  • What can industries do at this stage?

The slideshow in PDF format will contain hyperlinks for more information and selected NIA briefings/reports would be handed out.

Training Objective:

  • The US and the EU (and its Member States) have fundamentally different approaches to the regulatory debate surrounding nanomaterials; what is the background for this? How have these approaches developed and changed?
  • What is the role of the OECD and the ISO community in the debate on nanomaterials-specific risk assessment, nanomaterial-specific policies and standards?
  • The European Commission has published a ‘Recommendation for the definition of nanomaterial’ for regulatory purposes, while the US Administrations and Agencies stick to a no-regulatory-definition-policy; does this distort the market?
  • What do companies exporting into foreign markets, or manufacturing outside the US need to be aware of?

Who Should Attend

  • Public- and regulatory affairs personnel
  • Product-safety directors
  • OHS directors
