The federal government has generated a series of tools aimed at taking proactive and responsible steps for the safe handling of nanomaterials.
Tools for handling nanomaterials
The tools strengthen industrial and commercial accountability and set benchmarks for the responsible handling of synthetic nanomaterials. They are based on existing knowledge and applicable legal provisions. The tools are regularly updated to reflect the most advanced science as well as international developments.

contactpointnano.ch is an independent organisation that can put companies with questions about the safe handling of nanomaterials or national or international regulations in touch with experts. It also provides information on testing and analytical laboratories and runs courses and workshops on relevant issues.
