Report by the Federal Council of 9 April 2008

Nanotechnology is a rapidly growing field of research and development with increasing significance for business, research and society. It is therefore important to investigate thoroughly the potential risks as well as opportunities associated with it, and if necessary to take measures to protect humans and the environment. The Action Plan will create regulatory framework conditions for the responsible handling of synthetic nanoparticles.
