EPA Announces Plans to Regulate Nanoscale Products, including specifically Nanosilver

EPA announced they will require registration of products containing nanoscale silver that are designed to control microbes. The agency indicated it would not immediately act against unregistered products, such as socks, now sold in the U.S. http://1.usa.gov/1GEPZy9

EPA separately proposed a one-time requirement for makers of nanoscale commercial chemicals currently on the market to notify the agency about all available health and safety data for their products. Under this proposal, these manufacturers would also have to submit production volume and processing, use, exposure, and release information to EPA. http://www.epa.gov/oppt/nano/nano-fact-sheet.html
