This Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information to be used for risk assessment for active substances and products used as biocidal (i.e. non agricultural) insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods (in the EU, product type 18 [PT18] ). Biocidal products marketed as insecticides are used in many different applications. They may be used indoors (within buildings), outdoors (around

PRTR-to find out: What hazardous chemical substances and pollutants are being released to the environment or transferred off-site, how much is being released or transferred off-site over time, where the releases occur, and by whom.
This database was developed by the Task Force on PRTRs, which is part of the OECD's Environment, Health and Safety Programme. The purpose of this database is to share PRTR data as widely as possible within the OECD area.
This report presents the main generic management system standards (i.e. those MS standards used internationally and across business sectors) with special reference to the chemical industry.
The Resource Centre provides a clearinghouse of guidance manuals/documents ofrelease estimation techniques for the principal pollutant release and transfer registers developed by OECD member countries. The manuals and documents include descriptive information on the sources of pollution and the pollutants that are released, as well as information on emission factors, mass balance methods, engineering calculations, and monitoring
Recommends that Member countries establish or strengthen national programmes for the prevention of, preparedness for, and response to accidents involving hazardous substances.
OECD has initiated a new project to help Member countries and others assess and mange the impacts of chemicals throughout their life cycle (i.e., from production of a chemical substances, to distribution, use, recycling and/or recovery and final ...
