Environmental Defense and Du Pont Launched Nano Risk Framework

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

Webcast of the Nano Risk Framework is available at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars here.

Here's a glimpse of the "Framework":

The Nano Risk Framework is designed to be a comprehensive, practical and flexible tool for documenting and communicating the steps a user has taken to evaluate and address potential risks of nanoscale materials. The Framework offers guidance on the key questions an organization should consider in developing applications of such materials, and on the critical information needed to make sound risk evaluations and risk management decisions.
