AFTER Wayne Swan took the budgetary axe to the $21.5million National Nanotechnology Strategy in January, Science Minister Kim Carr yesterday vowed to establish a system for regulating the commercial fruits of nanotechnology.
There are no national or international standards or testing procedures for food, packaging and agricultural products containing nano-materials - particles manufactured at the scale of atoms and molecules.
"The Government is actively developing an appropriate regulatory framework for nanotechnology," Senator Carr said.
The effort was part of a review of the nation's innovation system and the work of the remaining two years of theNational Nanotechnology Strategy, originally funded for four years by the previous government, he said.
