16 September @14:00 CEST | This webinar is organised jointly by the EU funded Projects: NanoHarmony and NANOMET-OECD. Find out how Test Guidelines are developed through the OECD, with case studies from the Test Guidelines being supported through the projects for expansion into nanomaterials.
This report summarises the discussions and outcomes of the seminar on Bioinformatics and Regulation of Microbial Pesticides. The seminar was organised to share knowledge and possible concerns and promote a dialogue on the potential use of this technology in the evaluation of microbial pesticides and initiate a process to make recommendations on its potential added value in the safety assessment of microbial pesticides.
10-12 April 2019: The conference on RNA interference (RNAi) based pesticides will provide an overview of the current state of the knowledge of RNA interference (RNAi) as it relates to the potential use of this naturally occurring mode of action in agriculture. This will be an efficient route to this information for policy makers, particularly given the large volume of scientific information that is available in the literature.
24 June 2019: This OECD seminar presented and discussed the potential use of genome sequence, bioinformatic tools and databases in a regulatory decision process for microbial pesticides.
This third webinar in the series of Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs) was organised on Thursday 30 January 2020. It focused on the core information and telecommunication technologies applications that were built to support AOP development, management and dissemination. Tools and technical tips to facilitate scientific knowledge assembling and evaluations were also be presented.
Join us on Thursday 26 September 2019 @ 1 pm (CEST, Paris time) / 7 am (EDT time) to learn about efforts, successes and challenges in eliminating per and polyfluorinated chemicals of environmental concern from the life cycle of consumer products.
26 June 2019: The Pesticides Risk Reduction Seminar provided a good opportunity for experts in OECD governments and stakeholders to share their knowledge, experience and possible concerns in the area of Evolving Digital and Mechanical Technologies for Pesticides and Pest Management.
Policy instruments can be applied to improve the sustainability of plastics, including regulations, market-based instruments, information and voluntary tools. The report reviews the use of these instruments, provides good practice examples, such as product taxes and charges, eco-design standards, extended producer responsibility and environmental product labels, as well as discussing opportunities for their future applications.
Join us on 15 May 2019 @ 1 pm (Paris time) / 7 am (EST time) to learn about the latest Risk Reduction Initiatives for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances undertaken by Canada and the United States.
The OECD Conference on Genome Editing: Applications in Agriculture – Implications for Health, Environment and Regulation will explore the regulatory considerations raised by genome edited products, with the aim to favour a coherent policy approach to facilitate innovation involving genome editing.
