The development of standards and guidance for nanotechnology & nanomaterials, and 2) the coordination of existing ASTM standardization related to nanotechnology needs. This coordination shall include the apportioning of specific requests for nanotechnology standards through ASTM's existing committee base, as well as the maintenance of appropriate global liaison relationships with activities (internal and external) related to this subject area. The Committee shall participate in the development of symposia, workshops, and other related activities to enhance the development of standards.

This work item provides critical information for the characterization of immunological responses to nanomaterials including more recent COVID-vaccines. Specifically, side-effects reported in response to mRNA COVID vaccines, resemble infusion reactions, and therefore, these same work items apply to the characterization of lipid nanoparticle based mRNA vaccines.
