Nanophase Technologies (Nasdaq: NANX), a technology leader in nanomaterials and advanced nanoengineered solutions, has been independently recertified to meet the standards of ISO9001, the international Quality Management Standard and ISO14001, the international Environmental Management Standard. An audit of the Company's manufacturing and development facilities and associated environmental systems was recently conducted by an ANSI accredited third party auditor, SGS Systems of Rutherford, NJ. As a result of the audit and Nanophase's demonstration of the robustness of its Quality and Environmental Management Systems, recertification has been granted. Nanophase was originally recognized to meet the international standards of ISO9001 in January 1997 and ISO14001 in April 2005.

"Having external verification of Nanophase's quality and environmental management systems and demonstration of the company's compliance with these systems is very important as we continue to accelerate the growth of our business," commented Robert Haines, Nanophase's Vice President of Operations and Engineering. "It is important to our larger international customers, as well as for new business customers, to know that they are doing business with a reputable company that has robust environmental, health, and safety practices and who is a good corporate citizen. I would like to especially recognize our quality and environmental management staff for their leadership and hard work in this area. As a company we have institutionalized these systems, along with Lean Six Sigma, in the manner we conduct operations everyday."

Mr. Haines also noted that the Company had surpassed 880,000 hours worked, or over 400 man years, without a lost time accident. "This is an exemplary record, especially for a company of our size, and demonstrates the Company's sound safety practices and employee dedication to safety in the workplace," noted Mr. Haines.

Nanophase is a voting member of ASTM E56 and ISO USATG TC229, which are U.S.-based committees developing new international industry standards for the management and characterization of nanomaterials. Nanophase is constantly working to identify and apply best available technologies and practices to ensure worker, customer, and public safety.
