ISO/TS 80004 series of standards, from the International
Organization for Standardization, describe vocabulary for
nanotechnology and its applications. These were largely motivated by
health, safety and environment concerns, many of them originally
ISO/TS 80004-1:2015 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 1: Core terms
basic terminology relevant to nanoscale materials
ISO/TS 80004-2:2015 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 2: Nano-objects
terms and definitions related to particles in the field of nanotechnologies. This standard cancels and replaces ISO/TS 27687:2008, which has been technically revised.
ISO/TS 80004-3:2010 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 3: Carbon nano-objects
carbon nano-objects, e.g. carbon nanotubes
ISO/TS 80004-4:2011 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 4:
terms and definitions for materials in the field of nanotechnologies where one or more components are nanoscale regions and the materials exhibit properties attributable to the presence of those nanoscale regions. A nanostructured material has an internal or surface structure with a significant fraction of features, grains, voids or precipitates in the nanoscale. Articles that contain nano-objects or nanostructured materials are not necessarily nanostructured materials themselves. ISO/TS 80004-4:2011 includes nanodispersion.
ISO/TS 80004-5:2011 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 5: Nano/bio interface
the interface between nanomaterials and biology...intended to facilitate communications between scientists, engineers, technologists, designers, manufacturers, regulators, NGOs, consumer organizations, members of the public and others with an interest in application or use of nanotechnologies in biology or biotechnology, or the use of biological matter or principles in nanotechnology.
ISO/TS 80004-6:2013 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 6: Nano-object characterization
terms and definitions relevant to the characterization of nano-objects.
ISO/TS 80004-7:2011 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 7: Diagnostics and therapeutics for healthcare 
medical diagnostic and therapeutic applications; exploitation of material features at the nanoscale for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes in relation to human disease
ISO/TS 80004-8:2013 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 8: Nanomanufacturing processes
gives terms and definitions related to nanomanufacturing processes in the field of nanotechnologies. It forms one part of multi-part terminology and definitions documentation covering the different aspects of nanotechnologies.
IEC/TS 80004-9:2017 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 9: Nano-enabled electrotechnical products and systems ISO/TS 80004-11:2017 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 11: Nanolayer, nanocoating, nanofilm, and related terms ISO/TS 80004-12:2016 Nanotechnologies—Vocabulary—Part 12: Quantum phenomena in nanotechnology
ISO/TS 80004-7:2011 provides consistent and unambiguous use of terms for healthcare professionals, manufacturers, consumers, technologists, patent agents, regulators, NGOs, and researchers, etc. Related standards
For "identifying, evaluating, addressing, making decisions about, and communicating the potential risks of developing and using manufactured nanomaterials, in order to protect the health and safety of the public, consumers, workers and the environment...risk evaluations and risk management decisions... in the face of incomplete or uncertain information... methods to update assumptions, decisions, and practices ... methods organizations can use to be transparent and accountable in how they manage nanomaterials. It describes a process of organizing, documenting, and communicating [about these]."
