This paper on nanotechnology discusses not only the regulatory concerns but also health risk and hazard assessment. The next section examines present and potentially future regulatory issues. The following two sections review traditional and time tested-methods that the practicing engineer and scientist employ in health and risk analysis assessment—procedures that are also employed in the nanotechnology field today. This paper concludes with a discussion of nanotechnology’s future and other associated concerns.
