EPA Developing Nano Stewardship Program
EPA has launched what the Agency describes as “a collaborative process to develop a Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program to complement its work under TSCA.” EPA asks stakeholders to assist in the development of this new Nano regulatory program. Some components of the Stewardship Program may include:

  • Assembling existing data and information from manufacturers and processors of existing chemical nanoscale materials;

  • Encouraging the development of test data needed to provide a firm scientific foundation for future work and regulatory/policy decisions; and

  • Identifying and encouraging use of a basic set of risk management practices in developing and commercializing nanoscale materials
EPA is compiling a list of interested stakeholders who will be kept informed of and included in the Agency’s Nano initiatives.
