ANSI Nano Standards Panel Launches Free Database

The launch is part of an its effort to help members and partners to bolster the visibility of existing and in-development guidance documents, reference materials, and standards, according to the organization.

The American National Standards Institute Nanotechnology Standards Panel (ANSI-NSP) has launched a new database compiling information about nanotechnology-related standards and related activities. The database does not directly host standards and other similar documents, instead providing information about them. But standards-developing organizations have the option of adding links to their relevant documents.

The database was first discussed during a February 2013 meeting of the ANSI-NSP, according to ANSI's July 29 news release.

"Standards have a significant impact when they are broadly used. This database will be a valuable tool that can enable information sharing and raise awareness about available standards or those under development and can play an important role in furthering the responsible development and commercialization of nanotechnology," said ANSI-NSP Co-chair Ajit Jilavenkatesa, Ph.D., senior standards policy advisor at the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

"The diverse nanotechnology community has been very productive in creating methods and procedures that are of general interest,” said ANSI-NSP Co-chair Shaun Clancy, Ph.D., director of product regulatory services for the Evonik Corporation. “Unfortunately, these are often hard to find even though they are publicly available. The creation of the ANSI-NSP Nanotechnology Standards Database will make it easier to find these documents and facilitate continued improvements in productivity in the community."
