Abstract

Some engineers and scientists are either directly or indirectly involved with nanotechnology issues. Nanotechnology concerns dealing with environmental implications and regulatory compliance encompass practicing areas for these technical individuals. Areas of particular concern include current/proposed environmental regulations and procedures for quantifying both health risks and hazard risks. This article addresses both of these issues.
Keywords: nanotechnology; nanomaterials; nanoparticles; nanoapplications; environmental implications; regulatory compliance; environmental concerns; environmental risk management; risk evaluation process; hazard risk; nano-related regulations nanotechnology; nanomaterials; nanoparticles; nanoapplications; environmental implications; regulatory compliance; environmental concerns; environmental risk management; risk evaluation process; hazard risk; nano-related regulations
