Davies, J. Clarence
Washington, DC: Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars, 2007 May: 73 p.
"This paper focuses on the U.s. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and its role in dealing with the potential adverse effects of nano. EPA administers more laws that are relevant to nano than does any other agency. The federal law the potentially could have the broadest coverage of nanomaterials is the Toxic Substances Control Act, administered by the EPA. EPA is doing more research on nano than is any other regulatory agency. It will inevitably be a central player in the unfolding drama of nano's development." (page 11 of the report)
