NanoBCA Recommends: NNCO Webinar – Tues 7/9 Noon-1PM ET

Posted on July 8th, 2019 in Uncategorized | No Comments »

The NanoBusiness Commercialization Association (NanoBCA) would like to recommend the 2019 Nano EHS Webinar Series offered by the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO). The details for the next webinar are listed below.

Nanotechnology-Related Standards: Availability and Applications
Tuesday, July 9, 2019
Noon – 1PM ET

Click here to REGISTER

SPEAKERS
– Dr. Mark Ballentine (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers)
– Dr. Scott Brown (The Chemours Company)
– Dr. Katherine Tyner (U.S. Food and Drug Administration)

MODERATOR
Dr. Ajit Jillavenkatesa (National Institute of Standards and Technology)

OVERVIEW
The development and use of nanotechnology-related standards is critical to ensuring validated measurements and methods to specify nanomaterial-containing products. Standards are also necessary for comparative evaluation and assessment of the EHS effects. This webinar will discuss various existing and ongoing standards efforts and will highlight case studies from industry and government on how these standards are being applied and supporting nanoEHS research and safer product design. This webinar will also discuss how interested stakeholders can engage in these efforts.

December 3, 2018, marked the 15th anniversary of the authorization of the NNI. As part of the NNI’s year-long celebration, the 2019 NanoEHS webinar series focuses on the state of the science in this important area.

UPCOMING EVENT
ELI Summer School Series 2019: Law & Policy of Products Regulation
Tuesday, July 23, 2019
Washington DC and via webinar
Register online by Thursday, July 18, 2019

The life cycle of industrial, agricultural, and antimicrobial chemical products, especially those embedded in consumer products, has gained increasing public attention. Regulators are looking at the entire product lifecycle, including post-discard of product at the end of its useful life, as well as toxicity data. Lynn L. Bergeson, Managing Partner, Bergeson & Campbell P.C. (B&C®), will present chemical product regulations matters including risk communication, minimizing legal liability, and evolving policy matters.
