In the end of 2006 the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) staged the first nationwide Consumer Conference on Nanotechnology in order to find out what requirements informed consumers want use of this technology to meet. The Conference served as a forum for a group of 16 individuals to acquire broad insight into the opportunities and risks of nanotechnology in a multi-phase process. The group mainly focused on the use of nanotechnology in foods, cosmetics and textiles. After a public expert hearing the group proceeded to the consumer vote. The consumer vote was publicly handed over to representatives of politics, associations and authorities as the outcome of the Consumer Conference.

We are pleased to present you now the English translation of the consumer vote:

Yours sincerely
René Zimmer
