Nano World: Regulations in prospect

Abstract:
Nanotechnology remains under the radar of many regulatory agencies, who have yet to craft major rules specifically to deal with the rapidly expanding field.

As the results of science and engineering on the scale of molecules begin to affect more and more lives over the coming decade, however, so will laws surface for the field, experts told UPI's Nano World.

"The planning phase for nanotechnology regulations needs to start now," said J.D. Shipman, a research associate with the University of South Carolina currently at the University of North Carolina School of Law.
