This example briefly outlines risk assessment of a substance possibly release into watercourses by using the toolkit to investigate setting an EQS would be protective of short-term exposures.
This example briefly outlines risk assessment by using the toolkit to identify information of pesticide available in other countries.
This report was initiated by the OECD’s Sustainable Chemistry Issue Team. Previous work within the OECD attempted to use patent data to better understand innovative activity in sustainable chemistry. However, more information and analysis is needed to understand the dynamics of innovation in this area, especially from the industrial perspective. In order to begin the process in a preliminary way, researchers from the Yale Center for
This is the report of an OECD workshop on metals specificities in environmental risk assessment, held on 7-8 September 2011 in Paris. The workshop was held following a proposal from the Task Force on Hazard Assessment to organise workshops on the hazard assessment of specific groups of chemicals, and identify opportunities for harmonisation of approaches across regions.
This report presents the results of an OECD Seminar (Paris, May 2010) on biopesticide issues related to the fate in the environment of microbial control agents and their effects on non-target organisms.
The purpose of this Issue Paper that has been developed by the OECD BioPesticides Steering Group, is to highlight current international microbial contaminant criteria on food and drinking water and to encourage discussions among OECD member countries.
To help users find the information that they seek, this is a list of directories and databases on Chemical Safety and Biosafety at the OECD, along with a brief desciption.

This page details the Council Decisions related to Good Laboratory Practice. The OECD Principles of GLP set out managerial concepts covering the organisation of test facilities and the conditions under which pre-clinical safety studies are executed.
This Guidance Document will help in planning the trials in OECD countries and in interpreting the results.It is part of the Series on Pesticides (no. 66).
