The UK has a great potential to be a key global player in nanotechnology.
To encourage manufacturing growth in the UK it is however essential to have an appropriate Health, Safety and Environment regulatory framework, together with adequate Government innovation policy, financial backing and public acceptance. It is also important to have global agreements on standards and definitions to ensure fair global competition.
Any future health, safety and environment regulatory decisions on nanotechnology and subsequent enforcement within the UK will impact on both producers and users of nanomaterials i.e. through REACH, Cosmetic Products, Novel Foods and other consumer product legislation.
How we engage in the public debate on nanotechnology is extremely important for the reputation of the industry. The Chemical Industries Association, together with the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills and the Knowledge Transfer Networks, cordially invite you to a FREE one-day event to:
• Stimulate and exchange views on the developing regulatory regime for nanomaterials;
• Engage with key stakeholders;
• Provide the opportunity for networking with others interested in nanotechnology
