Nanotechnology Policy Framework
The size and molecular configuration of nanoparticles yield unique properties that are being explored for use in commercial products, medicine and environmental cleanup, but the hazards they present to fertility and reproduction, as well as overall health, are unknown. As part of an effort to anticipate emerging exposures of concern to fertility and reproduction, PRHE developed a policy framework for the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment of the California Environmental Protection Agency. The framework focuses on how the agency might most effectively pursue the process of hazard identification for nanotechnology products and provides recommendations for improving policies to address potential health risks from nanomaterials.
