What’s New in ISO/TC 229 Nanotechnologies? Join December 7 Webinar


Register Now for December 7

Find out what’s new in the world of nanotechnology standards: The ANSI-accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) technical committee (TC) 229, Nanotechnologies, invites interested stakeholders to attend a webinar to hear about the committee’s updates on new projects and activities under development.

Created in 2005, ISO/TC 229 has published 106 documents in areas including: terminology and nomenclature; measurement and characterization; health, safety and environment; materials specifications; and products and applications. Forty-four projects, including preliminary work items, are currently in progress, with the United States currently leading (or co-leading) approximately 15 of those projects.

Join the webinar for updates on:

  • Terminology for advanced materials
  • Synthetic biological reference materials
  • Nanomaterials in medical/drug applications
  • Nanomaterials utilized in agriculture
  • Graphene classification

Register for the webinar,“What's New in ISO/TC 229 Nanotechnologies?,” to be held on December 7 from 1-2:30 p.m. ET. Please contact Heather Benko, ANSI associate director, standards facilitation, with any questions: [email protected].

About the U.S. TAG TO ISO/TC 229, Nanotechnologies

ANSI administers the U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 229, Nanotechnologies. The scope of the U.S. TAG mirrors the scope of ISO/TC 229, as follows:

Standardization in the field of nanotechnologies that includes either or both of the following:

  • Understanding and control of matter and processes at the nanoscale, typically, but not exclusively, below 100 nanometers in one or more dimensions where the onset of size-dependent phenomena usually enables novel applications
  • Utilizing the properties of nanoscale materials that differ from the properties of individual atoms, molecules, and bulk matter to create improved materials, devices, and systems that exploit these new properties
