The word ‘nano’ is derived from the Greek word ‘nanos’, meaning ‘dwarf’, ‘very small man’. However, in the study of nanoscience and technology, this word is used to mean a scale of measurement like mile, meter, inch etc. Because of number of reasons, it has turned to be the wave of the future and world community is in a race to take lead in this area. The regulatory discussion on nanotechnology mostly rotates around the study of chemical legislation, environmental law, occupational health and safety, product liability, and consumer protection law etc."
