On 6 November 2018, the OECD was awarded the Silver Award in the research category at the 2018 Global Chemical Leasing Award for its report on the Economic Features of Chemical Leasing.
On 30 October 2018, Eeva Leinala of the OECD Environment Directorate; Ruth Garcia, Gemma Janer and Marc Torrentellé from LEITAT; and Julio Fierro of the Centro Tecnológico de Investigación Multisectorial presented the MIDWOR-LIFE project that aims to mitigate the environmental, health and safety impacts of current Durable Water & Oil Repellents and available alternatives by looking at their environmental impact & technical performance.
This new version includes changes to align to the OECD Harmonised Templates version Nov. 2017 and the GHS Rev.5 (2015) & GHS Rev.7 (2017). The users will be able to perform your property searches using the same fields as in the most recent OECD Harmonised Templates, equivalent to IUCLID 6.2. Likewise, the classification and labelling search increases alignment with the latest GHS classification revisions.
The webinar will present the MIDWOR-LIFE project that aims to mitigate the environmental, health and safety impacts of current Durable Water and Oil Repellents and available alternatives by looking at their environmental impact and technical performance.
The first report describes the linkage between inhibition of complex I of the mitochondrial respiratory chain and motor deficit as in parkinsonian disorders. The second report links chronic binding of antagonist to N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors during brain development leading to neurodegeneration. The third report details the linkage between binding and activation of androgen receptor leading to reproductive dysfunction.
This paper reviews and compares five case studies on quantification and economic valuation of benefits in cost-benefit analyses (CBAs) of regulating phthalates, mercury, PFOA (perfluoro-octanic acid) and its salts, NMP (1 methyl-2-pyrroloidine) and formaldehyde. The case studies had all been carried out as part of the SACAME project, and the purpose of the present paper is to draw out cross-cutting findings from these studies.
A patch for QSAR Toolbox version 4.2 was released to fix several bugs. It is a minor update to version 4.2 and can be installed as a separate product or alternatively version 4.2 can be updated to version 4.2.1 using the provided patch.
The four new cases includes aspects regarding use of IATA for prioritisation and consideration of the properties of nanomaterials for read-across as well as learning on the application of read-across for repeated dose toxicity.

This guidance document was originally published in 2012 and updated in 2018 to reflect new and updated OECD test guidelines, as well as reflect on scientific advances in the use of test methods and assessment of the endocrine activity of chemicals. The document is intended to provide guidance for evaluating chemical using standardised test guidelines.
