Next CEN Nanotechnology Working Group Meeting set for 8 October

August 16, 2004

Brussels, 13 Aug 2004

In March 2004, the CEN Technical Board (BT) created CEN/BTWG 166 'Nanotechnology'. The Working Group reports to the CEN/BT and its secretariat is with the BSI (British Standards Institution).

Its major task is to analyse the need for standardization activities in this new area and to initiate relevant activities. The first step is the drafting of a Business Plan for a new CEN/TC.

The first meeting took place in July 2004, the next one will be at the BSI on 8 October 2004.

People interested in attending this meeting and contributing to the work should liaise with their National Standardization Standards Body.
