Key policy issues associated with U.S. competitiveness in nanotechnology include environmental, health, and safety (EHS) concerns; nanomanufacturing; and public understanding and attitudes. EHS concerns include both direct consequences for health, safety, and the environment, and how uncertainty about EHS implications and potential regulatory responses might affect U.S. competitiveness. One such effect might be the discouragement of investment in nanotechnology due to the possibility of regulations that might bar products from the market, impose high regulatory compliance costs, or result in product liability claims and clean-up costs.
