BCCM Creates Website for Nanotechnology Initiatives in California

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

B&C Consortia Management, L.L.C. (BCCM), an affiliate of Bergeson & Campbell, P.C., wishes to ensure that you are aware of a new website designed to be a platform for sharing information on nanotechnology policy, legislative, and regulatory initiatives in California. The website — — provides regular updates on areas and initiatives that could potentially impact the development or use of nanomaterials in California. It also includes information on broader nano-initiatives, recognizing that such initiatives can and will influence nanomaterials policy developments and decisions in California and elsewhere.

The site currently includes overviews of key programs to watch in California, as well as policy and viewpoints on nanotechnology from parties outside of California. The home page includes a quick description of the California Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) new leader, Debbie Rafael, who will be instrumental in determining when, how, and whether new nano regulations emerge in California. Visitors also have the opportunity to join the CalNIN mailing list. Subscribers will receive periodic updates that may include information on upcoming events, new developments within the nano-industry, significant updates to the website, and other relevant and timely information.

The website has been designed and developed by BCCM as a courtesy to the nano community, and a reflection of our collective commitment to it.

We invite you to visit the website and share the information with other interested parties. If you have items that you think should be included on the website, please contact the web administrator, Jake Vandevort.
