New - DOE P 456.1 Chg 1 (AdminChg), Secretarial Policy Statement on Nanoscale Safety

The safety of its employees, the public, and the environment is the Department’s number one priority. This policy statement is issued to establish a framework for working safely with nanomaterials. Nanomaterials exhibit unique properties that can affect physical, chemical and biological attributes. Much of the scientific information on the safety, health and environmental hazards of working with these materials is yet to be determined. With the establishment of the Department’s Nanoscale Science Research Centers and other emerging programs, research and development in nanoscience will increase significantly for the foreseeable future. Supersedes DOE P 456.1, dated 9-15-2005.
