Risk management of chemicals

Series on Risk Management - Publications by number

 

The series on Risk Management covers methodologies for both governments and industry to manage risks posed by chemicals and, when appropriate, to harmonise risk management activities. The OECD provides information on the following areas: perfluorinated chemicals, substitution of hazardous chemicals, sustainable chemistry and others.

 

What's new

 

The OECD releases the Global Forum on Environment: Plastics in a Circular Economy - Design of Sustainable Plastics from a Chemicals Perspective meeting report.

This report provides a summary of the discussion at the “Global Forum on Environment: Plastics in Circular Economy – Design of Sustainable Plastics from a Chemicals Perspective”. The main focus of the Global Forum was the design stage of plastic products, and how chemical selection decisions influence environmental and health outcomes at various stages of the product lifecycle. Better design decisions can help to minimise these impacts, and improve the ‘circularity’ of a product by facilitating material recovery at the end of life.
