Abstract

Guidelines developed by the Foresight Institute for the responsible development of nanotechnology. Guidelines attempt to lay out a plan for developing industry standards, testing and developing effective safety precautions for possible toxicity concerns, balancing the benefits and risks of nanotechnology development, and developing effective, international means of restricting the misuse of nanotechnology such as the building of weapons to be used by terrorists, and promoting the ethical behavior of researchers and manufacturers of nanotechnology.
