The OECD workshop Consideration of Chemical Safety in Green Procurement was held in Seoul (Korea) on 8-10 November 2005. It was prepared by the Issue Team on Chemical Product Policy and hosted by the Korea Ministry of Environment and the Korea Environment Institute. On the basis of examples of existing product categories and criteria for selecting products within product categories, the workshop identified differences and
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.
The aim of the OECD Risk Management Programme is to develop methodologies to support government and industry efforts to manage risks posed by chemicals, and, when appropriate, to harmonise risk management activities on particular chemicals.
