The NanoBusiness Alliance is pleased to share a copy of the attached guidance document NANOTECHNOLOGY-CONSIDERATIONS FOR SAFE DEVELOPMENT from the State of Massachusetts released last week.

Prepared by the Massachusetts Office of Technical Assistance & Technology (OTAT), this document is intended to assist in the development of nanotechnology by identifying good manufacturing practices for preventing exposures and releases. The document also contains a useful list of technical references and assistance contact information.

“Consistent with the NanoBusiness Alliance’s Position Statement on Nanomaterials Product Sustainability, the OTAT guidance reflects a commitment to prudent business practices while advancing the promise of nanotechnology.” stated Lynn Bergeson, Partner, Bergeson & Campbell and the NanoBusiness Alliance’s EH&S Chairman.

We encourage communication from our Nanotechnology Community stakeholders. Please feel free to email me your thoughts.
