Abstract

As many authorities predict the applications of nanotechnologies will change all areas of life and will enable dramatic advances to be realized in all areas of communication, health, manufacturing, materials and knowledge-based technologies. Due to these facts there is an obvious need to provide industry and research the suitable tools to aid the development and application of those technologies. Moreover, the reliable measurement systems and evaluation protocols supported by well-founded and robust standards are needed for regulator and health and environmental protection agencies.  

The answer on the development of nanotechnology was the establishment of the International Organization for StandardizationISO Technical Committee ISO / TC 229; Nanotechnology, IEC / TC 113 [3] Standards of nanotechnology devices and systems for electrical and electronic Electrotechnical International Commission and CEN / TC 352 Nanotechnology in the European Committee for Standardization. Committees ISO / TC 229 and CEN / TC 352 work closely together - according to the Vienna Agreement.

In Poland the normalization in the area of nanotechnology until 30 December 2011, dealt with two technical committees TC 207 - Incremental machining and KT 60 - Power electronics and semiconductor devices. Increasing need of standardization in the field of nanotechnology in Technical Committee 207 justified the launch of the establishment of the technical committee especially focused on nanotechnologies. As a result of these actions, on 30 December 2011, Technical Committee 314 Nanotechnology was appointed, which took over responsibility for the standardization work carried out in the Technical Committee 207 in the field of nanotechnology.

Technical Committee 314 scope includes issues relating to the matter and processes at the nanoscale, typically, but not exclusively, of dimension less than 100 nm in one or more directions, where the properties depend on the dimensions enable new applications, use the properties of materials at the nanoscale to produce improved materials, equipment and systems using these new features, terminology and nomenclature, metrology and instrumentation, including specifications for reference materials, research methodologies, modeling and simulation, with based on scientific aspects of health, safety and environmental protection.
