Standardisation of nanomaterials in the VAMAS project
(the Versailles project on Advanced Materials Standardisation)
The Versailles Project on Advanced Materials and Standards (VAMAS) was established following an economic summit in 1982 held at Versailles by the Heads of State of the G7 group of nations and representatives from the Commission of the European Communities. The membership has expanded over the last few years. The main objective of VAMAS is to promote world trade by innovation and adoption of advanced materials through international collaborations that provide the technical basis for harmonisation of measurement methods, leading to best practices and standards.
VAMAS supports world trade in products dependent on advanced materials technologies, through International collaborative projects aimed at providing the technical basis for harmonized measurements, testing, specifications, and standards.
