Using Trading Zones and Life Cycle Analysis to Understand Nanotechnology Regulation

Journal of Law, Medicine & Ethics 34 (4):695-703 (2006)
This article reviews the public health and environmental regulations applicable to nanotechnology using a life cycle model from basic research through end-of-life for products. Given nanotechnology's immense promise and public investment, regulations are important, balancing risk with the public good. Trading zones and earth systems engineering management assist in explaining potential solutions to gaps in an otherwise complex, overlapping regulatory system
