Standardization in nanotechnology - Status review and requirements analysis from the occupational safety and health perspective

Around 260 standardization documents related to nanotechnology were identified, including published standards, draft standards, technical specifications and reports as well as (proposed) work items. The majority of the documents describe testing and measurement methods. Others are concerned with terminology, material specifications, process descriptions and guidance. Around 30 documents can be considered directly relevant in terms of occupational safety and health. They are either entirely or partially related to OSH aspects for which there are definitions, process descriptions or other provisions set out in government regulations or the body of rules issued by Germany’s social accident insurance institutions.
