Abstract: Photocatalytic technologies and novel nanosurfaces materials, their practical applications as well as possible legislative limits to construction material are discussed. Experience with several applications projects in Europe in early beginning are leading to conclusion that successful industrial commercialization of photocatalytic systems at present is strongly dependent on the development of testing methods accepted as ISO or CEN standards to ensure the advertised function and thus worldwide acceptance. This is also one of the main objective of the European COST 540 project called “Photocatalytic technologies and novel nanosurfaces materials critical issues”, which is understand as European platform to group the existing European teams focusing on the development of photocatalytic nanomaterials and standard photoactivity testing methods. Results of that project, which already joined 20 Europeans countries, focused to RILEM conference topic can be seen at the COST Action web site.
