Abstract:
The 15th meeting of Nanotechnology Standardization International Committee (ISO/TC229) was held in Mexico from March 4 to 8 with over 200 representatives from 18 countries in attendance.

Nanotechnology Standardization Int'l Committee Evaluates Iran's Proposed Standard

Tehran, Iran | Posted on March 16th, 2013

In the meeting, various standards proposed by different countries were studied and discussed. Iran also proposed one of the standards entitled 'Nanotechnology Indices Glossary', which is due to be devised with the cooperation of Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). This standard defines some concepts, including nano product, nanoscience and nanotechnology human resources, nanotechnology market, etc. the definition of these terms helps the measurement of indices to evaluate nanoscience and nanotechnology.

By using a common international language about nanoscience and nanotechnology evaluation indices, the number of nano products, nanotechnology based companies, and nano economy can be studied and assessed at international and national levels. Various statistics are currently published by different international organizations about the number of nano products, nano market, etc, which are far different. The reason is the lack of an international definition and language in this field.

Numerous specialized proposals had been presented by countries like the United States, Canada, and France about the terms nano product and human resources in nanotechnology. The proposals were studied in the meeting, and some of them were approved. The definitions of nano product and human resources in nanotechnology were devised as well.
