As a follow-up to the meeting convened by FAO/WHO in June 2009 on the potential food safety implications arising from the use of nanotechnology in food production, FAO and WHO have reviewed activities undertaken on the risk assessment and risk management of nanomaterials in the food and agriculture sector. The report presents national and international initiatives, approaches set out by international government and non-government organisations, and future recommendations.
