NanoEHS Webinar Series

An Introduction to Voluntary Standards and Their Role in Enhancing the Quality of Scientific Research 

Wednesday, January 25, 2017 07:00 PM UTC - 08:30 PM UTC


The safe development and commercialization of nanotechnology depends on the availability of internationally agreed upon standards. Such standards enable the use of consistent terminology, measurement protocols, and well-characterized reference materials. Standards are thus foundational for precise and reproducible measurements. These measurements are essential for the reliable assessment of human and environmental exposure and hazard.

This webinar provides an introduction to voluntary standards, the nanomaterial measurement infrastructure (NMI), and how the development and use of standards enhances the quality of scientific research. The NMI is a core category of the 2011 NNI Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Research Strategy and is an enabling category for the other components of the EHS strategy (e.g., exposure, human health, and environment). This webinar is part of NEHI’s NanoEHS Webinar Series
