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.
