An issues landscape for nanotechnology standards

Abstract:
The Institute for Food and Agricultural Standards has released a report titled An Issues Landscape for Nanotechnology Standards.
Over the last several years a wide range of new nanotechnologies has been developed with many more under development around the world. These new technologies pose a wide range of challenges for standards, from developing proper nomenclature to issues of interchangeability, risk, privacy, worker and consumer health and safety, and environmental protection.
