Scoping Study on the Inclusion on Releases and Transfers from Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) in PRTRs
This symposium will be held on 23rd April 2007 in Tokyo, Japan. A two-day OECD WPMN meeting - OECD Workshop on the Sponsorship Programme for the Testing of Manufactured Nanomaterials - will follow this event to discuss the sponsorship programme for the testing of manufactured nanomaterials.
This Programme of Work on Manufactured Nanomaterials 2006-2008 was agreed in September 2006 September by OECD’s Chemicals Committee. To implement this work the Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials (WPMN) was established. The Terms of Reference for the WPMN are found in Annex II.
This document describes the benefits that will accrue to regulatory authorities, companies (registrants) and the general public as a result of joint evaluations of dossiers in which two or more countries divide the work required to review a pesticide data submission.

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.
Revised Guidance for Grouping of Chemicals. Considers closely related chemicals as a group, or cateogory, rather than as individual chemicals. In this approach, not every chemical needs to be tested for every endpoint.
Argentina becomes a Provisional Adherent to MAD Council Decisions
This document provides guidance on the residue analytical methods. Analytical methods are used to generate the data for estimating dietary exposure assessments, to establish Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs), and to determine processing factors.
The conference, to be held in Dublin on 2 November 2007, will focus upon the emerging discipline of nanotoxicology and its implications to the broader nanotechnology community. Particular emphasis will be given to the food, environment and medical sectors. The conference will bring together a number of international leaders in the area of nanotoxicology and represents the first conference on this novel topic to be held in Ireland.
