Summary
The OECD’s Joint Meeting of the Chemicals Committee and Working Party on Chemicals, Pesticides and Biotechnology, held a Special Session on the Potential Implications of Manufactured Nanomaterials for Human Health and Environmental Safety (7 June 2005), which was intended to identify human health and environment safety issues associated with manufactured nanomaterials.
Based on the discussion of the Special Session, the 38th Joint Meeting (held 8-10 June 2005) decided to organize this OECD Workshop for the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials to identify potential safety issues in more detail. This document is the report of the OECD Workshop held 7-9 December 2005.
The OECD Workshop on the Safety of Nanomaterials was hosted by the United States and held 7th-9th December 2005. As far as is known, this was one of the first opportunities for governments to discuss this topic at the international level, together with other stakeholders.
