Appendix B
Statement of Task

The National Research Council shall conduct a scientific and technical review of the draft document entitled “Federal Strategy for Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials,” expected to be publicly released by the U.S. National Nanotechnology Initiative in September 2007. An ad hoc committee will plan a workshop and evaluate the scientific and technical aspects of the draft strategy and comment in general terms on how this strategy will develop information needed to support the EHS risk assessment and risk management needs with respect to nanomaterials. In its evaluation the committee will take into consideration the report, Environmental, Health, and Safety Research Needs for Engineered Nanoscale Materials (NEHI 2006) and other governmental and non-governmental reviews identifying EHS research priorities.
