font size    

China will have its first national standards for nano material in effect from April 1.

There are seven items, including a Glossary, four standards for Nano products, nickel powder, Zinc Oxide, titanium dioxide, and calcium carbonate, as well as two for testing of gas adsorption BET and the granularity of nano powder.

Nano materials have attracted much attention from the public in China. however, some businesses play tricks and consumers get consufed.

Li Zhonghai, Director of Standard Administration of China, disclosed that research on 15 nano materials standards were underway and the 7 items released this time was only the first batch.

The standards is expected to lay a good foundation for the establishment of market access and technical standards, regulating the market, proper application of tech-intensive nano materials and the healthy development of the sector.

As this is also the first national standards for nano material in the world, Li expects it would be a draft for an international standard for nanotechnology.

Liu Zhaobin, spokesman for General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, confirmed that preparation for certification of nano materials had begun and personnel training had launched.

The nanotech emerged at the end of 1980s and the beginning of 1990s in the world. China is one of the countries which start the research earliest. It has developed carbon nanotube and other nano materials which is known to the world.
