GoodNanoGuide


The International Council on Nanotechnology (ICON) recently launched GoodNanoGuide, a “collaboration platform designed to enhance the ability of experts to exchange ideas on how best to handle nanomaterials in an occupational setting (…) meant to be an interactive forum that fills the need for up-to-date information about current good workplace practices, highlighting new practices as they develop“. As summarized on Nanotechnology Law Report : “The site has a “Basic” section for those who are just beginning to deal with nanomaterials, an “Intermediate” one for those with some knowledge but in need of more, and an “Advanced” section for the more experienced. At each level, there are links that are focused on specific topics, such as protecting workers using nanomaterials in an industrial setting.”
