Federal nanotechnology renewal grant awarded to ASU faculty
Date:11/2/2010

l organizations and other private actors play important roles, and on "soft law," in which some mandatory requirements are replaced by voluntary norms."

Examples include a code of conduct that may be adopted by an individual firm or group of stakeholders, and the establishment of a network of national regulatory agencies, which can adopt recommendations for addressing health, safety and other risks and coordinate national actions.

"Mechanisms like these can be adopted more easily than binding legal requirements, are highly flexible, and allow for direct participation by concerned parties," Abbott said. "They are especially useful as interim measures in situations where the appropriate form and level of regulation is not yet clear, as with nanotechnology."

The team also will continue to expand a public online database of proposed and enacted regulatory requirements and programs that are specific to nanotechnology at the international, national and sub-national levels. The Nanotech Regulatory Document Archive (nanotech.law.asu.edu) was created as part of the first grant, and now has more than 300 government regulatory documents from more than 20 national jurisdictions.

"In addition to looking more closely at governance structures, this new grant will allow us to continue to operate and update the world's most comprehensive website on nanotechnology regulations," Sylvester said. "This website catalogs every regulatory action taken to analyze or control this emerging technology, and this new grant provides funding for us to continue to make it available to the public and to seek input from regulators and experts around the world on new and emerging regulations in the area."
