Most OECD Member countries have a regulatory system for the products of modern biotechnology intended for release to the environment and for food/ feed use. This page includes links to portals of each member country which include relevant information.
The purpose of this emission scenario document (ESD) is to provide a realistic worst-case emission scenario for chemicals used at recovered paper mills.
Emission estimation plays a key role in the risk assessments of chemical pollutants. These assessments have been facilitated with the use of Emission Scenario Documents (ESD’s) developed by member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
This ESD on nonintegrated paper mills is representative of the industrial phase of the life cycle, when the pulp is converted to paper and/or board products.
The purpose of this emission scenario document (ESD) is to provide a realistic worst-case emission scenario for chemicals used at kraft pulp mills.
This Emission Scenario Document (ESD) addresses active substances for insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods (in the EU, “product type 18”1), Used in animal housing and man
This document summarises the outcome from a Policy Dialogue on Exposure Assessment which was held on 6-7 June 2005 in Paris, in conjunction with the 38th Joint Meeting of the Chemicals Committee and the Working Party on Chemicals, Pesticides and Biotechnology.
This for-sale publication unites all 14 of the OECD documents related to Good Laboratory Practice and compliance monitoring, and, in the Annex, reproduces the three OECD Council Decisions related to the Mutual Acceptance of Data in the Assessment of Chemicals.
The main objective of the Workshop on the Safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials was to determine the “state-of–the–art” for the safety assessment of manufactured nanomaterials with a particular focus on identifying future needs for risk assessment within a regulatory context.
This report presents the main generic management system standards (i.e. those MS standards used internationally and across business sectors) with special reference to the chemical industry.
