Abstract:
Regulators believe that nanotechnology presents completely new risks against which existing health, safety and environmental regulations may provide inadequate protection. Insurers are considering whether the use of nanotechnology products and processes will give rise to a new wave of personal injury, property damage and environmental liability risks. This talk will identify key risk management insurance issues you can expect to encounter as you develop and commercialize your nanotech product. We’ll also present practical tips to help companies and their investors alike minimize early stage investment risks and navigate through what will be evolving regulatory and insurance environments.
