Nanotechnology – FDF Response to House of Lords Select Committee Enquiry

FDF's responsed to the House of Lords Science and Technology Committee's enquiry into the use of nanotechnologies in food

We believe there is a need for adequate safety assessment in all applications of nanotechnologies, where their application gives rise to changes in existing products or processes, such that a new assessment of any risks to human health or the environment may be required. We believe that it is possible to adapt the existing regulatory system to deal with new scientific evidence on engineered nanoparticles as necessary.
