This webpage aims to give access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment and management of chemicals. It describes the work flow of environmental risk assessment and management with links to relevant OECD products that can be used in each step of the work flow. The Toolkit has been revised 1) to include resources other than OECD products, and 2) to incorporate three examples (i.e. textile dye, pesticide and environmental quality standard setting) which show the risk assessment steps involved in each case.
NOTE: This web site does not provide extensive guidance for all aspects of Risk Assessment, but focuses on products and tools developed in the OECD Environment, Health and Safety Programme.
This page focuses on environmental risk assessment. For risk assessment for human health, please refer to the WHO Human Health Risk Assessment Toolkit project conducted by WHO/IPCS.
