The American Chemistry Council’s Nanotechnology Panel is composed of companies with business interests in nanotechnology products and applications.
The Panel’s vision is to be the primary forum and leading advocate for the responsible development of nanotechnology among nanomaterial manufacturers and users.
The Nanotechnology Panel’s Mission Is To:
Promote the responsible development of nanotechnology by advancing knowledge of good product stewardship practices among nanomaterial producers and users.
Support the development of appropriate, science- and risk-based regulations, nomenclature and definitions for nanotechnology that foster safety and innovation.
Engage with other stakeholders to address environmental, health and safety issues regarding nanotechnology and respond to public concerns.
Support research needed to assess and manage potential health and environmental risks associated with nanoscale materials.
Engage in public outreach highlighting innovative and sustainable applications and improving public awareness of societal benefits of nanotechnology.
The Panel will conduct activities in a transparent manner and promote open dialogue with stakeholders to achieve its mission.
