NanoVerify Programme

The NANOVerify programme is a voluntary nanotechnology certification programme. There are three (3) schemes under this programme. The schemes are; (i)NANOVerify Programme which is jointly operated by  SIRIM QAS International, (ii) NANOTrust and (iii) GRAPHENEVerify.

The NANOVerify Programme certifies processes and products which have incorporated nano elements within the 1 to 100 nanometre range. Apart from size and type certification, the NANOVerify Programme offers certification on the functionality enhancements obtained as a result of embedding nano elements, covering mechanical, surface, and electrical properties. Launched on 22 May 2015, NANOVerify is the first voluntary nanotechnology certification programme in Malaysia, and only the sixth of its kind in the world. NANOVerify provides Malaysian nanotechnology products and applications with independent and credible quality assurance.

Since its introduction in 2020, the GRAPHENEVerify and NANOTrust Schemes were developed to strengthen local SMEs’ abilities to successfully market their nanotechnology-enabled products both within the country, as well as overseas. Since its launch, the programme has verified a spectrum of nanotechnology products, ranging from daily use items such as cosmetics, fertilizer, and clothing, to more specialized technology-related applications such as technology wafers with carbon nanotubes. Upon certification, the products are awarded either NANOVerified, NANOTrusted, and GRAPHENEVerified Marks.

NANOVerified Mark

Applied on products or smallest packaging unit to signify it has been verified and characterised to indicate presence of nano-sized element(s) has been verified.

Over the past few years, nanotechnology-enabled products have made inroads into daily consumer goods. Product manufacturers have found that the introduction of small amounts of nanomaterials into their existing product line can lead to significant enhancements of existing properties, or even result in new properties. These provide consumer goods manufacturers with a unique selling point for their products, thus differentiating them in the marketplace. Applications cover items such as clothing, to food packaging materials.

While consumers have much to gain from this market trend, the overriding concern is ensuring that these nanotech products are credible and reliable. As nanotechnology is still a relatively new area, it is vital to protect consumers from unscrupulous manufacturers who may claim that their product incorporates nanotechnology-enabled benefits, when in actuality it does not. It was with this in mind that NanoMalaysia embarked on the NANOVerify Programme.
