Nanotechnology Law and Policy includes an examination of the scope of nanotechnology as a science and as a commercialized application of science, and the legal, regulatory and policy aspects of this emerging technology. There are still only a few cases about nanotechnology, but laws and ordinances specifically addressing nanotechnology continue to develop. At the federal level, federal agencies have developed policy statements on how they expect to approach the regulation of nanotechnology in their jurisdictional areas, and some agencies such as EPA and FDA are well into the aspect of regulation of nanotechnology applying existing statutory and regulatory frameworks. This comprehensive book will be accompanied by an instructor's guide with teaching materials.
