Abstract:The National Nanotechnology Initiative has committed substantial funding to nanoscale research and development. These efforts will bear fruit fairly soon, yet the path to commercial production is strewn with a number of potentially considerable legal, regulatory, and societal obstacles. This paper examines one of these issues--the question of federal regulatory capacity--and suggests ways to begin addressing them in a proactive manner.
