NTSC Proposes Nano Tech Standards

The Nanotechnology Technical Standards Committee (NTSC), which works under the auspices of the Science Ministry, has proposed 62 national standards in the field of nanotechnology.

According to Iran Nanotechnology Initiative Council (INIC), the standards cover a wide range of areas related to the development of the rapidly expanding industry.

One of the requirements for the development of nanotechnology is the issue related to nano metrology and measurement methods. Hence, about two-thirds of the standards apply to metrology and measurements.

In addition, about a quarter of the proposed standards address the applications of nano electronics.

Four standards in the field of nano electronics are related to terminology and definitions, with one dealing specifically with nano-safety.

Among the approved titles, three standards are related to three domestically produced nanotechnology-based products.

The standards are known as product-based standards. Additionally, a number of standards are allocated to nano materials such as nano-silica, nano cellulose, cadmium quantum dots, single-walled carbon nanotubes and graphene.

The NTSC is planning and tracking supportive and executive measures for the preparation and legislation of these standards. It had previously ratified 32 other nano technology standards.
