Managing Nanotechnology

Abstract:
Earlier this month, the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars hosted a standing-room-only briefing on its latest nanotechnology report. At issue was whether the current federal regulatory framework could effectively oversee the development of nanotechnology and manage any potential negative effects that may arise.

Not everyone agrees that new legislation is needed. "Until we have good, solid, scientifically validated information that would indicate significant inadequacies in existing regulatory authorities, additional regulations would just be unnecessarily burdensome," says E. Clayton Teague, director of the government's National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO).
