EPA Announces Public Meeting on Nanoscale Materials

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency will conduct a public meeting on June 23, 2005, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. to discuss a potential voluntary pilot program for certain nanoscale materials and the information needed to adequately inform the conduct of the pilot program. The meeting will be held at the Washington Plaza, 10 Thomas Circle NW., Washington, DC 20005.

While some nanoscale materials are new chemical substances that are subject to notification requirements under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), others are existing chemical substances and can be marketed without EPA notification. The EPA is thus requesting comments at the public meeting on: (1) the scope and purpose of a voluntary pilot program for nanoscale materials that are existing chemical substances, (2) kinds of information that are relevant to the evaluation of potential risks from exposure to nanoscale materials, (3) chemical characterization and nomenclature of nanoscale materials for regulatory purposes, and (4) identification of interested stakeholders. These comments will inform EPA on possible approaches to protect human health and the environment from exposure to such chemical substances. More information
