Nanotechnology is up for consideration by EFSA's science brains, but certain crucial steps in introducing the technology to the market - including a clear definition of the term - must be taken before it came be used successfully and safely, said panellists at a debate last week.
The discussion, entitled Nanotechnology in Food, took place as part of EFSA's fifth anniversary Scientific Forum in Brussels last week.
The authority has been asked by the European Commission to provide and opinion on nanotechnology. Tony Hardy of Central Science Laboratory in the UK, who chaired the discussion, said that the idea of the debate was to hear what opinions are our there and to record them.
