Brazil's Anvisa Renews Focus on Nanotechnology

Posted 09 September 2013 | By Ansis Helmanis 

Brazil's National Agency for Sanitary Surveillance (Anvisa) renewed its cooperation agreement on 9 September 2013 with the country's National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq). 

The renewal particularly foresees cooperative research on the use of nanotechnology in products of interest to health and whether there is a need for regulation targeting such products.  The objective is to fill the existing gaps in scientific technological knowledge concerning the use of nanotechnology in regulated products and what would be needed to support additional regulation.
