EPA encourages input to develop risk management practices for nanotechnology

Following up on recent posts about concern in the insurance industry and in Congress about risk management practices for (current and near-term) nanotechnology, David Forrest passes along this news of recent action at EPA:

The EPA has published their Interim Report on the Nanomaterials Stewardship Program and continues to invite comment for the final version. See http://epa.gov/oppt/nano/stewardship.htm The Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program (NMSP) “will help provide a firmer scientific foundation for regulatory decisions by encouraging submission and development of information including risk management practices for nanoscale materials.”
