      Upcoming Webinar to Provide U.S. Input on Draft ISO/CEN Technical
      Specification for Labeling Manufactured Nano-Objects and Products Containing
      Manufactured Nano-Objects

      Register today for July 9 webinar

      Washington, DC, June 29, 2010: The American National Standards Institute
      (ANSI) and the ANSI-accredited US Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO/TC
      229, Nanotechnologies, invites all U.S. interested stakeholders to provide
      input on a proposed draft Technical Specification (TS) that addresses the
      labeling of manufactured nano-objects and products containing manufactured
      nano-objects at an upcoming webinar, scheduled for Friday, July 9, 2010.

      The TS, jointly developed by the European Committee for Standardization
      (CEN) Technical Committee (TC) 52, Nanotechnologies, and the International
      Organization for Standardization (ISO) TC 229, Nanotechnologies, is titled,
      Guidance on the labeling of manufactured nano-objects and products
      containing manufactured nano-objects. CEN holds the leadership of TS development
      activity.

      As the nano-labeling document will likely have broad implications for a
      number of U.S. industry sectors, including food, cosmetics, and chemicals,
      the ANSI-accredited U.S. Technical Advisory Group (TAG) to ISO TC 229 invites
      U.S. stakeholders to provide feedback on this draft TS at an upcoming
      webinar. The event will take place on Friday, July 9, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00
      p.m. EDT. Registration is required.

      The two-hour webinar will feature an overview of the current draft TS,
      including background information on its development, and will give
      participants an opportunity to ask questions and offer comments. These comments will
      be provided to the ANSI-accredited U.S. TAG for consideration in connection
      with the development of the U.S. position and vote on this draft document.

      For more information, contact Heather Benko, ANSI senior manager for
      nanotechnology standardization activities (_hbenko@..._
      (mailto:hbenko@...) ; 212.642.4912).
