BSI to launch standards for nanotechnologies

Abstract:
BSI British Standards is set to launch a series of standards and guides explaining nanoscience, the study of materials that are nano in size, meaning one-billionth of a metre.

The worldwide market for nanotechnology-enabled products is expected to exceed $1 trillion a year by 2015.

Nanotechnologies are already used in medicine, some so-called green technologies and in over 500 consumer products such as laptops, sunscreen, tennis rackets and socks. Increasingly nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes are used in plastics products.

BSI British Standards said that standards must be implemented at an early stage so that knowledge transfer is efficiently done while maintaining public awareness and consumer confidence.
