The aim of the Responsible NanoCode is to establish a consensus on what constitutes good practice and, in the absence of regulation, to provide interim guidance on what organizations and businesses can do to demonstrate they are managing nanotechnologies responsibly.

It is hoped that the Code will contribute to ensuring nanotechnologies achieve their full potential in delivering health, environmental and economic benefits at a time when businesses are dealing with a variety technical, social and commercial uncertainties concerning these relatively new technologies. The Code is intended to be appropriate to, and adopted by, international companies and organizations worldwide large and small that work with nanotechnologies.

The draft Code was developed by a multi-stakeholder Working Group, chaired by Lord John Selborne KBE FRS, is made up of representatives from international business and academe, and from NGO, labor and consumer groups.
