Regulators Not Adequately Prepared to Manage Risks Posed by Nanotechnology

Regulators Not Adequately Prepared to Manage Risks Posed by Nanotechnology

Three stakeholder groups agree that regulators are not adequately prepared to manage the risks posed by nanotechnology, according to a paper published in the peer-reviewed journal PLOS One. In a survey of nano-scientists and engineers, nano-environmental health and safety scientists, and regulators, researchers at the UCSB Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS) and at the University of British Columbia found that those who perceive the risks posed by nanotechnology as "novel" are more likely to believe that regulators are unprepared.

New NIOSH Recommendations for Controlling Worker Exposures to Nanomaterials

New NIOSH Recommendations for Controlling Worker Exposures to Nanomaterials

The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) issued new recommendations on Nov. 8 for controlling worker exposures to engineered nanomaterials during the manufacture and industrial use of those materials. The recommendations are based on technologies now applied in the various industries that use nanomaterials, and on control methods that have been shown to be effective in reducing occupational exposures in other industries.

People Desire Labeling for Food Nanotechnology

People Desire Labeling for Food Nanotechnology

New research from North Carolina State University and the University of Minnesota finds that people in the United States want labels on food products that use nanotechnology – whether the nanotechnology is in the food or is used in food packaging. The research also shows that many people are willing to pay more for the labeling. [More]
