Nanotechnology and Nano sciences is one of the technologies that is set to transform the world’s economy by bringing transformation in various factors that bring about development. This involves health, agriculture among other sectors of the economy. The debate on the effects and the uncertainty caused by this technology has however been on the rise and experts have warned on the impending danger if this technology is not regulated or carefully implemented. The rise of the usage of nanomaterial in international market for instance has led to further significant amount of challenges. Nano sciences and nanotechnologies are set to change the worldwide modern scene, yet the level headed discussion on the best way to control environment, health and safety risks is hiding behind the technological innovations.

Current administrative endeavors’ are essentially centered around the national and provincial level, while the worldwide measurements of nanotechnology administration are still inadequately comprehended and once in a while highlight on the international plan. With the continuous globalization of Nano sciences and the quick extension of international exchange nanomaterial, nonetheless, interest for worldwide coordination and harmonization of administrative methodologies is set to increment.

Notwithstanding, vulnerability about nanotechnology hazard represents a significant situation for controllers and approach producers. Vulnerability both makes interest for and hinders more noteworthy global participation and harmonization of administrative methodologies. This dissertation surveys the rising open deliberation on nanotechnology hazard and administrative methodologies, explores the present condition of worldwide collaboration and diagrams the basic commitment that a worldwide administration methodology can make to the protected advancement of nano-technologies .This dissertation is going to describe the еffесts of unсеrtаinty on the rеgulаtiоn of hеаlth and safety in the dеvеlорmеnt of nаnоtесhnоlоgy and the policies that have been put in place to tackle these challenges basing on some countries.
