Regolare l'invisibile: i quadri normativi europeo e statunitense sul nanofood

Luca Leone

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in rivistaArticolo in rivistapeer review


Innovation driven by nanotechnicological processes has certainly found in the agro-food sector one of the most interesting areas of application. However, the complexity and scientific uncertainty characterizing nanotechnologies have been increasing the interest in the risks connected to them, creating at the same time problems of flexibility and effectiveness in the regulation. This paper traces the evolution of the legal framework for nanofood in the EU, and compare it with the US regulatory approach. The analysis shows that the EU and US normative approaches with reference to nanofood are not still incisive in ensuring the safety of food and promoting responsible research activities.
