September 2, 2009 - During meeting on Sept 9, ANSI Nanotechnology Standards Panel will address priority areas for nanomedicine standards, standards already in existence that can be utilized in nanomedicine, gaps in existing set of standards, and impact that nanomedicine standards will have on existing regulation. Panel is being convened as a result of discussions at March meeting, where members identified nanomedicine as an industry sector where U.S. should take the lead in standards development.

Press release date: August 28, 2009

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Nanotechnology Standards Panel (NSP) will hold a panel addressing standards for nanomedicine during its upcoming meeting on September 9, 2009, in Chicago.

The panel is being convened as a result of discussions at a March meeting of the ANSI- NSP, where members identified nanomedicine as an industry sector where the U.S. should take the lead in development of nanotechnology standards.

Nanomedicine is a promising and rapidly expanding field resulting in a need for standards coordination efforts to facilitate its growth and impact," said Clayton Teague, chairman of the ANSI-NSP and director of the National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO). "The U.S. has the opportunity to lead these efforts, taking the first steps needed to formulate relevant and market-driven standards to serve this area."

Panelists at the September meeting will address:
  • Priority areas for nanomedicine standards
  • Standards already in existence that can be utilized in nanomedicine, if any
  • Gaps in the existing set of standards
  • Relevant stakeholder groups
  • Impact that nanomedicine standards will have on existing regulation

    Attendees will also discuss potential coordination with other medical-related standards activities, including: the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) Technical Committee (TC) 84, Devices for administration of medicinal products and intravascular catheters; ISO/TC 150, Implants for surgery; ISO/TC 194, Biological evaluation of medical devices; the California Nanosystems Institute; and others.

    The panel will be facilitated by Martha Marrapese, chair of the Working Group (WG) 1, Terminology and Nomenclature of the U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO/TC 229, Nanotechnologies. The nanomedicine panel will be held from 3:00 - 4:45 p.m. at the McCormick Place in Chicago, as part of the NSP's September 9 meeting. [see related article] ANSI-NSP meeting coordinators are currently seeking both speakers and attendees for the panel who have an interest and background in nanomedicine and nanotechnology standardization. Interested stakeholders are invited to contact Heather Benko (, 212.642.4912) for more information.

    Proposed Project on Nanomedicine Terminology
    A project proposed by the ANSI-accredited U.S. TAG to ISO/TC 229 will also be introduced at the nanomedicine panel.

    Martha Marrapese will present the details of the Development of a Nanomedicine Terminology Framework proposal. If approved, the project will identify the terms that need to be defined in nanomedicine by WG 1.
