One of the startling aspects of nanotechnology is its ability to bring science fiction into real daily life. The promise of nanotechnology fits squarely into the international legal system's conceptual matrix for precautions protecting health and operationalizing health rights. Political will surrounding nanotechnologies creates an important open question regarding the way that society will view the logical extremes of risk management dilemmas in daily life. Classification and Labeling of Chemicals (GHS) has two implications for labels. First, it is deceptively simple to offer consumers a label, but at the same time, it is not clear whether the label will be appropriately understood. Second, detailed labels can be very useful if training is also required. In the international arena of nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), Memoranda of Understandings (MoUs) provide an ideal vehicle for encouraging capacity building without a commitment of government funds and, more importantly, without committing governmental policy to informal activities.
