Transnational Environmental Governance of Nanotechnology: A US Regulatory Perspective
Volume 9, Issue 4

Jeff Morris and Maria J. Doa

Supporting transnational governance of the environmental, health, and safety implications of nanotechnology is important to responsible US regulation of nanomaterials under the Toxic Substances Control Act. This article identifies priority environmental science and policy issues that must be addressed for nanotechnology regulation, and describes how US government engagement in international discourse helps articulate and address those issues. The authors suggest a path forward for science policy that advances transnational environmental governance for nanotechnology as well as for other emerging technologies subject to chemicals regulation.
