An interesting commentary on health concerns associated with nanotechnology.

On October 31, 2012, the Canadian Standards Association adopted an International Standards Organization (ISO) Technical Report on the occupational safety and health of nanotechnology as a national voluntary standard.( 1 ) What role can this and other international standards play in ensuring safety and health of workers in the United States? In this commentary, we argue that international standards can play an important role in protecting the health and safety of U.S. workers exposed to nanomaterials until national regulatory standards are considered and adopted.
