ANSI-NSP Nanotechnology Standards Database Webinar Rescheduled for December 5

New York, Oct 23, 2013

The American National Standards Institute Nanotechnology Standards Panel (ANSI-NSP) has announced that a free webinar providing an introduction to the new ANSI-NSP Nanotechnology Standards Database has been rescheduled for Thursday, December 5, 2013. This database is a powerful new tool that is intended to serve as a free, comprehensive resource for individuals and groups worldwide seeking information about standards and other relevant documents related to nanomaterials and nanotechnology.

The ANSI-hosted webinar, which is scheduled to take place from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. ET on December 5, will cover the various ways that the database can be effectively used by groups and individuals as a resource, and will provide information about the short-term and long-term goals associated with the creation of the database. In addition, participants will receive updates on ongoing standards activities relevant to nanotechnology and nanomaterials.

There is no charge to take part in the webinar; however, advance registration is required. To register for the webinar, visit the event’s online registration page. Representatives of standards developing organizations (SDOs), companies developing or making use of nanotechnology or nanomaterials, academics, and consumer groups are strongly encouraged to attend this webinar.

The ANSI-NSP Nanotechnology Standards Database is part of a larger ongoing effort by the ANSI-NSP and its members and partners to bolster the visibility of existing and in-development nanotechnology guidance documents, best practices, and standards. To make the database relevant to the needs of the user community and help it grow, SDOs, government bodies, and other stakeholder organizations are encouraged to contribute information about their current and in-progress documents and projects.

To access the database or submit information about relevant documents, visit Please note that registration on the site is required to submit information via the entry forms provided.

Formed in 2004, ANSI-NSP serves as the cross-sector coordinating body for the facilitation of standards development in the area of nanotechnology.
