ABSTRACT
ISO/TS 12901:2012 provides guidance on occupational health and safety measures relating to engineered nanomaterials, including the use of engineering controls and appropriate personal protective equipment, guidance on dealing with spills and accidental releases, and guidance on appropriate handling of these materials during disposal.ISO/TS 12901:2012 is intended for use by competent personnel, such as health and safety managers, production managers, environmental managers, industrial/occupational hygienists and others with responsibility for the safe operation of facilities engaged in production, handling, processing and disposal of engineered nanomaterials.ISO/TS 12901:2012 is applicable to engineered materials that consist of nano-objects such as nanoparticles, nanofibres, nanotubes and nanowires, as well as aggregates and agglomerates of these materials (NOAA).
