ANSI Nanotechnology Standards Panel Meeting Rescheduled for February 2013

Author: ANSI - Published Fri 28 of Dec, 2012 09:05 EST - (674 Reads)

The American National Standards Institute's Nanotechnology Standards Panel (ANSI-NSP) will hold a meeting on Monday, February 4, 2013, in Washington, DC (location to be determined). Originally scheduled for October 30, 2012, the meeting was postponed as a result of Hurricane Sandy

NIST Releases First Certified Reference Material for Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes

Author: NIST - Published Thu 22 of Dec, 2011 11:42 EST - (608 Reads)

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has issued the world’s first reference material for single-wall carbon nanotube soot. Distantly related to the soot in your fireplace or in a candle flame, nanotube-laden soot is the primary industrial source of single-wall carbon nanotubes, perhaps the archetype of all nanoscale materials. The new NIST material offers companies and researchers a badly needed source of uniform and well-characterized carbon nanotube soot for material comparisons, as well as chemical and toxicity analysis.

New International Guidelines Outline Process for Evaluating Risk in Nanotechnology

U.S. leadership supports development of newly released ISO technical report
Author: ANSI - Published Fri 10 of Jun, 2011 15:05 EDT - (333 Reads)

With the continual advancement of nanotechnologies and their ever-expanding use in more and more industries around the world, international standards must keep pace to ensure the safety and efficiency of this rapidly progressing technology. The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) recently published a Technical Report (TR) that provides guidance for assessing risk when working with nanomaterials.

Opportunity for Collaboration with California Department of Toxic Substances Control: Join The Industry Consortium for Environmental Measurement of Nanomaterials (ICEMN)

Author: Lynn L. Bergeson - Published Wed 02 of Feb, 2011 18:12 EST - (327 Reads)

BASF Corporation is interested in working collaboratively with other nanomaterial stakeholders and the academic community to provide the California Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) information on analytical methods which could be used to measure certain nanoscale materials in air, surface water, and soil. The collaborative project, -- known as the Industry Consortium for Environmental Measurement of Nanomaterials (ICEMN) will involve adapting known methods which are used to measure these substances in other media to the analysis of environmental media. The term of the consortium will be at least two years, which can be modified by mutual agreement.

We provide more information on ICEMN below, and ask that you consider joining this voluntary, dues free consortium, and sharing this information with interested others.
