  At the Ministry of Science and Technology 


              The Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) with collaboration from NSTDA, NANOTEC, Nanotechnology Association of Thailand, and Thai Industrial Standards Institute (TISI) organized a panel discussion on “Industrial standards manual: Development of nanotechnology industry in Thailand” this morning at the ministry. The aim of the discussion is to provide information to media, research agencies, and private sector groups on the importance of industrial standards manuals to enhancing economic trade and competiveness.


              TISI informed that the Royal Thai Government Gazette on February 11, 2016 announced the 3 industrial standardization manuals related to nanotechnology:

Vol 1:Standard Nanotechnology, guidelines specify the requirements of manufacturing nanomaterials.

Vol 2: Standard Nanotechnology Characterization, Guidelines for the production of nano-materials.

Vol 3: Standard Nanotechnology, Guidelines for the removal and nanomaterials safely.


3 additional manuals were recently approved by TISI. The manuals are:

Vol 4: Guidance on physio-chemical characterization for toxicologic assessment of manufactrured nanomaterials

Vol 5: Guidance on nanomaterial risk evaluation.

Vol 6: Particle size analysis using dynamic light scattering

              TISI indicated that they hope to approve the 7th manual in a few month and will consider additional manuals in the near future.
