This document is a report of the expert consultation held on 20 October 2010 with the aim to evaluate a set of structural alerts for estimating covalent binding of chemicals with proteins. This consultation was held based on a key recommendation from the OECD Workshop on Structural Alerts for the OECD (Q)SAR Application Toolbox held in May 2008 [see ENV/JM/MONO(2009)4]. The resulting set of alerts will be implemented in version 2.0 of
Within the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme, sponsors (countries or companies) assess and review industrial chemicals, which can include high production volume (HPV) or non-HPV, existing or new chemicals. Biocides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and food additives are generally not covered in these activities or are assessed in other OECD programmes.
OECD works with member countries and other stakeholders to cooperatively assess the hazards of industrial chemicals to generate OECD-agreed assessments that are available to the public and that can be used for priority setting, risk assessment and other activities within national or regional programmes.
A 1991 Council Decision resulted in the initiation of cooperatively assessing hazard and exposure of high production volume (HPV) chemicals using the Screening Information Data Set (SIDS) at OECD. In 1998, to coordinate with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) initiative, OECD and member countries began to focus on initial hazard assessments of HPV chemicals to increase transparency, efficiency and productivity,
