ANNOUNCEMENTS. Please email any technical issues to [email protected] CHANGE OF LOCATION : Days 1 and 2 will now BOTH be held at the Washington DC location of the US Environmental Protection Agency ( East Building ). Day 1 room numbers are correct as in the agenda.
We are asking you to
And this is all to inform the project Steering Committee, who will be making the final decisions of what to carry forward.
Please note that the workshop is science-focused, interested in methods development and standardization, and will not focus on regulatory actions.
In addition to the presentations, the expected workshop outputs are the reports from the charges of Breakout Sessions on Day 1 and Day 2 and a set of responses from the Steering Committee to elements of the Workplan.
The Steering Committee is choosing elements of a workplan for pilot testing and then later development of methods.
The methods development would be done in an inter-laboratory approach by laboratories volunteering their resources.

Review of the Task Group efforts to give context of what is known
Provide context of 1) what has been studied and 2) what the project is thinking of in terms of initial approach to methods development
Breakout sessions to narrow down the scope and choose key elements of the methods development workplan. (more on this in following slides
Finish breakout reports
Convene a Steering Committee decision session to determine what will go forward to the ITG as a charge to develop the workplan
The Breakout Sessions will make recommendations on how to frame and address specific elements of a Workplanto further the development of widely accepted methods for nanomaterial release measurement.
The recommendations should consider both
The project Steering Committee will use the recommendations to make decisions about how to proceed in methods development.
