Voluntary standards introduced for labeling nano products

TEXT SIZE bigger text smaller text

Nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanofibres? Nanotechnologies are increasingly pervading the products we buy, yet we are often unaware of their existence. In order to better inform consumers about their presence, ISO has developed a document which offers manufacturers a harmonized approach for the voluntary labelling of their nanoproducts and products incorporating nanotechnology.

The ISO technical specification, ISO/TS 13830:2013, Nanotechnologies — Guidance on voluntary labelling for consumer products containing manufactured nano-objects, provides guidance on the format and content of voluntary labels for consumer products containing manufactured nano-objects. It recommends, among other things, placing the term "nano" on product labels.
