The text of ISO/TS 17200:2013 has been prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 229 "Nanotechnologies" of the International Organization for Standardization and adopted as CEN ISO/TS 17200:2015 by Technical Committee CEN/TC 352 "Nanotechnologies", the secretariat of which is held by AFNOR. The responsible German standards committee is Subcommittee NA 062-08-17-04 UA "Werkstoffspezifikationen" ("Materials specifications") of Working Committee NA 062-08-17 AA "Nanotechnologien" ("Nanotechnologies") at Standards Committee Materials Testing (NMP) at DIN. This Technical Specification lists fundamental characteristics which are commonly determined for nanoparticles in powder form. The Technical Specification prescribes specific measurement methods for each of these characteristics. This Technical Specification does not specify acceptable quantitative criteria for the characteristics because they are subject to agreement between sellers, buyers, and regulators. Excluded in this Technical Specification are characteristics specifically related to health, safety, and environmental issues, as well as characteristics that pertain to specific applications of nanoparticles in powder form.
