Legal appraisal of nano technologies
On the basis of an analysis of the present state of "nano technologies" and a review of existing national and European environmental legislation, including legislation that is expected to come into force (in particular REACH) regarding nano technologies, it is the objective of this appraisal
- to identify gaps in legislation at both a national and a European level regarding nano technologies,
- to point out possible regulatory approaches and
- to formulate recommendations for further regulatory action.
