Together with other Agencies the Federal Office of Public Health is responsible for the implementation of the Swiss action plan “Synthetic Nanomaterials”. The action plan is intended to create the basis for the safe use of such materials. The action plan’s objectives are: Creating regulatory framework conditions for responsible handling of synthetic nanomaterials; Creating scientific and methodological conditions to recognise and prevent possible harmful effects of synthetic nanomaterials on health and the environment; Promoting public dialogue about the
promise and risks of nanotechnology; Better use of existing promotional instruments for the development and market launch of sustainable applications of nanotechnology In most of the activities international cooperation plays an important role.
