This case study intends to illustrate this concept for the short chain methacrylates,originally composed of four chemicals, for the bioaccumulation endpoint. The OECD QSAR Toolbox identified about 160 chemicals potentially falling within the applicability domain of the original category, and the hypothesis tested in this case study is the possibility to predict the bioaccumulation potential for untested members of the category. The
The Pesticide Programme of the OECD looks to help governments co-operate in assessing and reducing the risks of agricultural pesticides. The OECD encourages governments to share the work of pesticide registration and develops tools to monitor and minimise pesticide risk to health and the environment.
The objective of the OECD Biocide Programme is to attain a harmonised approach in the regulation of biocides in all OECD countries. The OECD is thus working on harmonising the main data requirements for biocides and the methodologies for the interpretation of these data.

The OECD monitors the manufacture and use of perfluoroalkyl sulfonates (PFAS) and related chemicals including perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) and perfluorocarboxylic acids (PFCA) and related chemicals including perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) through surveys conducted every 2-3 years. The related substances also include precursors, which are chemicals that can break down to form PFCA or PFAS. These chemicals are being monitored as they
This document presents the results of the survey of production and use information on Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS), Perfluoroalkyl Sulfonate (PFAS), Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA), related substances and products/mixtures containing these substances. The document was prepared by Australia on the basis of the responses received by 10th September 2004. The responses received after this date as well as a compilation of detailed
The OECD conducted surveys in 2004 and 2006 on Perfluorooctane sulfonate(PFOS), Perfluoroalkyl sulfonate (PFAS), Perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA), related substances and products/mixtures containing these substances. The 2006 survey also included Perfluorocarboxylic Acid (PFCA) and PFCA precursors. The information sought included chemical identities, volumes of manufacture and import, use patterns of these chemicals, availability of
The focus of the Workshop was to show the various attempts to implement service-oriented strategies such as "Chemical Leasing" models in practice. Moreover the possible economic and environmental benefits as well as the possible obstacles and drawbacks should be elucidated. The conclusions were to give an assessment of the prospects of future development for such business models.

This report was initiated by the OECD’s Sustainable Chemistry Issue Team and uses patent data to investigate green chemistry innovation trends. Due to the nature of the International Patent Classification (IPC) system it was not possible to identify a broad all-encompassing green chemistry indicator. As a consequence we have investigated selected technologies which can be identified reliably using IPC classes.While these are by no
