The Food and Drug Law Institute (FDLI) and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars Project on Emerging Nanotechnologies (PEN) will hold a conference on February 28-29, 2008, on “Nanotechnology Law, Regulation and Policy.” Questions addressed during the conference will include:

  • How is the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) going to implement its Nanotechnology Task Force Report?
  • How is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) going to deal with nanotech issues in the workplace?
  • Is Congress ready to act on nanotechnology if federal regulators don’t?
  • What first and second generation nanotechnology products are already on the market, and what’s to come?
  • Do Europe and Asia approach nanotechnology safety and oversight differently than the United States?
  • When it comes to nanotechnology, should size make a regulatory difference?
