OECD publishes manufactured nanomaterials roadmap 2010

(Nanowerk News) The OECD has published Manufactured Nanomaterials: Roadmap for Activities During 2009 and 2010 (pdf download, 304 KB).
The purpose of this document is two-fold. First, it presents a brief description of the ways in which the Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) contributes to the overall objectives of the Environment, Health and Safety Programme (EHS), and the OECD as a whole.
Second, it describes the key expected deliverables of the WPMN with an approximate timing of when the Joint Meeting might be expected to review them. This should allow delegations to both the WPMN and the Joint Meeting to better see the relationship of the work of the WPMN to that of other parts of the Joint Meeting; and to facilitate a better understanding of how the WPMN work is unfolding over time to ensure enhanced utility and maximum participation.
