US EPA’s long-awaited Nanoscale Materials Stewardship Program has finally been released for public comment and stakeholder involvement.  In fact, two Federal Register notices were issued today.  First, the notice on the Stewardship Program was issued.  Second, EPA issued a notice on the Information Collection Activities in Support of EPA’s Stewardship Program for Nanoscale Materials.  Both notices and accompanying documents are available at EPA’s website.

EPA will conduct a public meeting to discuss comments on this voluntary program on August 2, 2007 in Arlington, Virginia, and the comment period will run for 60 days from the date of the Federal Register notices, July 12, 2007.
