Subject outline

This subject will include an examination of the scope of nanotechnology as a science and as a commercialized application of science, and the legal, regulatory and policy aspects of this emerging technology. There are few cases, and few laws and ordinances specifically addressing nanotechnology; however every federal agency has developed a policy statement on their approach to regulation of nanotechnology in their jurisdictional areas, and some agencies such as EPA and FDA are well into the aspect of regulation of nanotechnology applying existing statutory and regulatory frameworks.
