The governance of emerging nano-risk in the semiconductor industry

An increasing number of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) are entering the market in everyday products, from healthcare and leisure to electronics, cosmetics, energy, agriculture, food and transport. Whilst for bulk chemicals, there are established regulatory frameworks dealing with the risk for the consumers, workers and the environment, this is not the case for nanomaterials. This situation has created a vivid community of nanosafety research, with the primary objective of ensuring that society can use nanomaterials safely and with confidence……….
