This blog article discusses how the European Parliament has given a deadline to the European Commission requiring them to have developed a proper regulation scheme for nanotechnology by 2011. The article discusses elements that are likely to be in the final legislation, and how the delay in the development of this kind of legislation has delayed developments in the nanotechnology sector as companies are unwilling to spend large sums of money developing technologies or products that may be outlawed or perceived differently by consumers as result of pending legislation.
