Abstract
Nanotechnology is a rapidly evolving and potentially transform native technology, which has the potential to greatly improve many areas of human life. Nanotechnology promises stronger and lighter materials, more efficacious pharmaceuticals, novel energy sources, more nutritious and longer-lasting foods, more sophisticated national security equipment, and revolutionary cancer treatments. As potentially transformative as nanotechnology may be, however, successful acceptance of any new technology, and its widespread commercial dissemination, requires strict attention to controlling potential risks, especially in countries with robust product liability and personal injury systems. International standards can serve to protect both product users and product manufacturers
