A number of reports have been published regarding the applicability of existing regulatory frameworks to protect consumers and the environment from potentially adverse effects related to introduction of nanomaterials into commerce in the United States and the European Union.

This report aims to fill this gap by reviewing regulatory frameworks designed to protect workers and their possible application to nanotechnology.
