What: A workshop sponsored by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and co-hosted by the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI) entitled “Quantifying Exposure to Engineered Nanomaterials from Manufactured Products – Addressing Environmental, Health, and Safety Implications.” This is a technical workshop to determine the state of the science and the tools and methods available to characterize and quantify exposure to engineered nanomaterials from consumer products.

When: Tuesday, July 7th and Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Where: Holiday Inn, 1900 N. Fort Myer Drive, Arlington, VA 22209

Who: The intended audience includes academics, Federal representatives, and manufacturers and distributors of nanotechnology-enabled products, as well as communities seeking to understand the exposure science related to engineered nanomaterials.

Why: The U.S. Government regulatory agencies participating in the NNI have put forth a risk-based regulatory agenda regarding engineered nanomaterials. This risk-based approach requires exposure data, since risk is the combination of both hazard and exposure. A main goal of this approach is to bridge toxicology with exposure science.

How: This two-day, 100 – 120 person technical workshop will focus on determining the state of the science and the tools and methods available to characterize and quantify nanomaterials presence, release potential, and population exposure.
