Abstract
This chapter has described the current efforts to fashion nanotechnology health and safety standards for workers, consumers, the general public and the environment. It is clear, though, that standards development is in its early stages and non-governmental efforts dominate. While several current mandatory safety and health standards are also applicable to nanomaterials, government efforts are underway to facilitate development of mandatory standards specific to nanomaterials. The absence of sufficient quantitative risk assessment information in animals or in humans limits governments in establishing such mandatory standards at this time. Nevertheless, the call for such standards is growing and it may not be too much longer before governments are forced to answer that call.
