Released nanoparticles could potentially cause injury. For this reason, it is important to conduct risk assesments in the development of nanotechnology, both in terms of production and in use of nanomaterials. This report is based on a joint seminar in St Petersburg in 2015, where Russian and Norwegian health officials examined the regulation of nanomaterials, identifying similarities and differences in the way it is done in the two countries.
