Iran’s proposals were approved at the last International Standardization Organization (ISO) meetings.
This past November, the international technical committee meetings for nanotechnology standards were held in Hangzhou, China with the participation of 19 countries. Iran actively participated in the meetings and proposed three new standards where they were approved,as potential new work item proposal.
At these meetings, two international standards including “Hydrophobic Nanocomposites- Properties and Performance Evaluation Method” as well as “Skin Toxicity of Nanoparticles- Evaluation Method” were presented by INIC Standardization Committee and received primary approvals.
In addition, proposal on "Nano-Suspensions for Heat Transfer - Properties and Measurement Methods", which was presented by the Iranian team 2 years ago, was discussed in a number of expert meetings and was finally approved. Thereafter, the document was sent to the committee for final vote.
As well as the above mentioned proposals, three other international standards, i.e. “Antibacterial Textiles Containing Nanomaterials- Performance Evaluation”, “Polymeric Nanocomposite Coatings for Food Packaging - Properties and Measurement Methods”, and “Evaluation of Nanomaterial Interaction with Proteins Using CD Spectroscopy” are being drafted under Iran’s supervision. These proposals were discussed at numerous meetings by experts and representatives of various countries.
