Registration is now open for an upcoming webinar hosted by the American National Standards Institute Nanotechnology Standards Panel (ANSI-NSP). The webinar, which will take place on Thursday, October 10, 2013, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT, will provide an introduction to the ANSI-NSP Nanotechnology Standards Database.
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
ANSI Nanotechnology Standards Panel Meeting Announced for October in Washington, DC
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.
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.
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.
Nanotechnology, which refers to research and development at the atomic, molecular, and macromolecular levels, is revolutionizing virtually all technology and industry sectors. With the growth of nanotechnology-based products across multiple disciplines, ensuring the safety and environmental impact of nano products is paramount to tapping into the technology full potential.
The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Nanotechnology Standards Panel (NSP) will hold a panel addressing standards for nanomedicine during its upcoming meeting on September 9, 2009, in Chicago.
The panel is being convened as a result of discussions at a March 2008 meeting of the ANSI- NSP, where members identified nanomedicine as an industry sector where the U.S. should take the lead in development of nanotechnology standards.
New York, NY, August 13, 2009: The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has announced that it will hold a meeting of its Nanotechnology Standards Panel (ANSI-NSP) this September in Chicago, co-located with the NanoBusiness Allianceâ€™s Eighth Annual NanoBusiness Conference.
Scheduled for the afternoon of September 9, 2009, the ANSI-NSP meeting will provide an opportunity for interested stakeholders to learn about ongoing nanotechnology standardization activities as well as to discuss particular areas of focus needed for nanotechnology standards.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee (TC) 229, Nanotechnologies, opened its annual plenary meeting yesterday in Seattle, Washington. Over 170 representatives from 23 countries were in attendance to advance the committeeâ€™s goals in nanotechnology standardization. The meeting is in session June 8â€“12, 2009.
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has published its first technical specification (TS) to support the ever increasing array of industry sectors that are embracing the development of materials at the nanoscale.
