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.
The main electronic tool for data submission, evaluation and exchange used in the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme is the International Uniform Chemical Information Database (IUCLID). IUCLID is a software program for the administration of data on chemical substances.
The OECD Harmonised Templates are standard data formats for reporting reults of studies with chemicals in order to determine their properties and effects on human health and the environment.
An investigation was conducted to analyse and assess current protocols to develop harmonised test methods and performance standards for the efficiency testing of biocides used in treated articles. The present report is the result of this investigation.
