Title: First approaches to standard protocols and reference materials for the assessment of potential hazards associated with nanomaterials
Published: September 19, 2009
Abstract: This report presents the outcome of the discussions of 60 experts in the field of safety assessment of manufactured NMs from academia, industry, government and non-profit organizations on some of the critical issues pertaining to the development of standard protocols and reference materials for assessment of the potential hazards associated with NMs. It should be noted here that there was a separate NiN workshop on determining the best metrics for assessing NP safety, and that this workshop was directed specifically to how best to standardise testing protocols and develop reference materials for human health assessment.
