Time to Regulate Nanoparticle Safety?
It's not often that an industry volunteers for tighter regulation and oversight. But that's just what happened this past June, when the Environmental Protection Agency hosted a meeting in Washington, DC, to discuss a voluntary pilot program aimed at collecting information on existing nanoscale materials in order to evaluate potential risks and exposures. The attendees, 150 scientists and officials representing industry, academia, government, and environmental and health advocacy groups, unanimously agreed such a system should be implemented.
