International Nanotechnology Standards Coordination Committee


The mission of TAPPI’s International Nanocellulose Standards Coordination Committee (INSCC) is to, wherever appropriate, provide a forum for information exchange in nanotechnology standards, and to coordinate and provide support to the development of nanotechnology standards at the TAPPI, national, and international level.

Why we need standards:

International standards have the potential to remove trade barriers, harmonize research and development activities, and contribute to development of regulations by national and international bodies. As government, academic and industrial research and development organizations endeavor to understand and develop nanocellulose-based products for multiple industrial sectors; the need for international standards for cellulose nanomaterials is necessary.
