|Chapter 6650 Unbound Engineered Nanoparticle Program|
This chapter defines Jefferson Lab's Unbound Engineered Nanoparticle (NP) program consistent with the requirements of 10 CFR 851 and DOE O 456.1.Scope
The field of nanotechnology is rapidly emerging. Much remains unknown about health and environmental effects.
Jefferson Lab treats engineered NP as suspect carcinogens. This chapter and its appendices (ES&H Manual Chapter 6650 Appendix T1 Minimum Mitigation Requirements for Unbound Engineered Nanoparticles and ES&H Manual Chapter 6650 Appendix T2 Emergency Procedure for Unbound Engineered Nanoparticles) define the administrative and engineering controls; transportation requirements; waste management; and emergency procedures necessary to manage environment, safety, and health (ES&H) concerns associated with the operations involved in synthesis, characterization, or manipulation of engineered NP.

T1 Minimum Mitigation Requirements for Unbound Engineered Nanoparticles
All work involving NP is conducted under an OSP or THA which describes the work and indentifies the hazards and controls which are used to mitigate those hazards. ES&H Manual Chapter 6650 Appendix T1 Minimum Mitigation Requirements for Unbound Engineered Nanoparticles is used to establish minimum hazard controls.
T2 Emergency Procedures for Unbound Engineered Nanoparticles
ES&H Manual Chapter 6650 Appendix T2 Emergency Procedures for Unbound Engineered Nanoparticles outlines the procedures for responding to an exposure to spill of engineered nanoparticles (NP).
Management authority may be delegated at the discretion of the responsible manager.
