The Commission is set to put forward a voluntary code of conduct for responsible nanotech research in late 2007, as lack of scientific knowledge about the risks of the emerging technology is impeding the development of specific legislation in the field.
The Commission launched on 19 July 2007 a consultation on a code of conduct for responsible nanosciences and nanotechnology researchPdf external . It seeks input for a specific Recommendation that the EU executive is planning to put forward before the end of the year.
As nanotech products are already being mass-produced in areas such as food, electronics and cosmetics, the political debate on regulating nanotechnologies is just beginning. A lack of scientific knowledge and the absence of evidence of the health and safety hazards of nanotech, however, make regulation impossible.
