Federal Agency Officials Meet to Discuss the Regulation of Nanotechnology, Foods, Drugs, Cosmetics, Devices and Biologics

Despite the rapid commercialization of nanotechnology, no nano-specific regulation exists anywhere in the world. Most regulatory agencies remain in an information-gathering mode - lacking the legal and scientific tools, information and resources they need to adequately oversee exponential nanotechnology market growth.

Now, for the first time, you’ll get to meet all the top officials from these government departments in one place and learn of their plans for regulating food and drug nanotech products. You’ll hear what’s really happening in Europe and Asia, on Wall Street, in the corridors of major corporations, in the more advanced laboratories, at forward-thinking universities and in the halls of Congress.

And you’ll also get the answers to those questions you’ve been talking to your colleagues about for the last several months:

  • How is FDA going to implement its Nanotechnology Task Force Report?
  • How is OSHA going to deal with nanotech issues in the workplace?
  • Is Congress ready to act on nanotechnology if federal regulators don’t?
  • What first and second generation nanotechnology products are already on the market, and what’s to come?
  • Do Europe and Asia approach nanotechnology safety and oversight differently than the United States?
  • When it comes to nanotechnology, should size make a regulatory difference?

Who Should Attend?

Pharmaceutical firm representatives, nanotech development specialists, venture capitalists, in-house and outside legal counsel, nanotech policy officials.
