October 2014

WEBINAR - Regulation of Nanotechnology: Practical Information for Industry, Researchers and Other Stakeholders, October 16, 2014, 1:00PM - 2:30PM EDT

This webinar was presented by the Air and Waste Management Association (AWMA). The commercialization of nanomaterials is rapidly growing. Existing laws are being used to manage potential risks and to promote nanomaterials’ benefits. Entities engaged with nanomaterials must be diligent and ensure commercial applications of nanomaterials pose no adverse effects. A proactive, informed approach can prevent adverse results and unintended consequences.
