Initial Insights for Major Accident Prevention

Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing research and development area with increasing importance for the economy, research and society. The present study addresses the question as to whether new criteria for the determination of the quantity thresholds quoted in the Ordinance on Protection against Major Accidents may result from the accident potential or possible new hypothetical accident scenarios related to the human and ecotoxicity of synthetic nanomaterials.
