2010 To Be a Busy Year for Regulation of Nanotechnology

On April 15th congressional leaders were busy
announcing legislation to tighten chemical regulatory policy in the U.S.
The House of Representatives released a discussion draft of legislation
to revise the Toxic Substances Control Act while the Senate released a
draft bill to enact changes to the primary chemical control law that has
been in effect since 1976. The draft legislation would appear to steer
away from nano-specific regulations but many of the proposed changes
will deeply impact the nanotechnology community. Recent presentations by
EPA officials provide a richer understanding of the changes taking
place within the Agency's approach to chemical regulatory policy and
more specifically, where nanomaterials fit into that policy. Read the

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
