Dual-Use Export Controls on Nanotechnology
Volume 5, Issue 1

Jamie A. Joiner, Baker & Hostetler LLP

One of the most important policy challenges posed by the proliferation of nanoscience and nanotechnology is preventing dangerous uses of the technology while cultivating development and commercialization of nanotech-based products. The export control laws were drafted prior to the widespread development and commercialization of engineered nanomaterials. As a result, there are a variety of ambiguities about how the regulations apply to nanotechnology. In this article, lawyer and export control expert Jamie Joiner provides an overview of the relevant laws and engages in a detailed analysis of how they apply to nanomaterials and products incorporating nanomaterials. She offers guidance to companies, universities, and research institutions in navigating the export control regimes.
