Abstract:
The Iranian delegates attending the 9th Asia Nano Forum Summit (ANFoS 2012) proposed establishment of a single code of operation for various fields of nanotechnology among Asian nations, describing it as the most important and effective contributor to market promotion.

Iran Urges Asian Nations to Adopt Single Standard for Nanotechnology

Tehran, Iran | Posted on September 19th, 2012

Professor Ali Beitollahi, the director of INIC's international collaboration committee, briefed the audience on Iran's activities regarding standardization policymaking and codification of nanotechnology. He also elaborated on Iran's Nano Scale Certificate, and invited the other member countries to help expand the nanotechnology market by adoption and promotion of this certificate.

Iran is the second country - after Taiwan - to introduce a nano scale certificate for organizing the market for nanotechnology-based products within Asia. In this summit, it was decided that Iran will host joint meeting under the title of Nano Mark in collaboration with Thailand and Taiwan in 2013.

The ANFoS 2012 was held with 11 member economies including Iran, Thailand, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Italy, Malaysia, New Zealand, Vietnam and Sri Lanka in attendance at the conference hall of Thailand Science Park Convention Center, Bangkok city, from August 22 to 23.

At the end of the summit, a statement focusing on sustainable development of nanotechnology in Asia was issued in the presence of the representatives from the 11 member economies.

In addition to highlighting the social, economic, environmental and safety impacts of sustainable development of nanotechnology, measures which can improve cooperation and standardization in various fields of the technology within Asia were specifically emphasized.
