    Revised Consensus Document on Compositional Considerations for New Varieties of Rice (Oryza sativa): Key Food and Feed Nutrients, Anti-nutrients and other constituents

    The document addresses compositional considerations for new varieties of rice by identifying the key food and feed nutrients, anti-nutrients, and other constituents. A general description of these components is provided including background material on the cultivated rice species, production, consumption, processing and uses of rice, and considerations to be taken into account when assessing new varieties of this crop.

    German database Information system für gefährliche Stoffe IGS

    German database Information system für gefährliche Stoffe IGS is now linked to eChemPortal. The IGS provides public access to a variety of information on chemical and microbiological substances mostly in German. The focus is on regulatory information reflecting German and European, as well as Swiss, US and selected other legislation and assessments. Beside this, information on substance data and emergency procedures is available.

    Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms in the Environment, Volume 5 - OECD Consensus Documents

    This series represents a compilation of the biosafety consensus documents developed by the OECD Working Group on Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology over the periods 2011-12 (Volume 5) and 2013-15 (Volume 6). Volumes 5 and 6 describe the biology, centres of origin, genetics, hybridisation, production and use, and ecology elements of several crops (sugarcane, cassava, sorghum, common bean, cucurbits) and trees (eucalyptus species). They also provide considerations on pathogenicity factors in assessing the potential adverse health effects of bacteria, and the low level presence of transgenic plants in seed and grain commodities.
    The consensus documents contain information for use during the regulatory assessment of products of modern biotechnology, i.e. transgenic organisms (plants, animals, micro-organisms), when intended for release in the environment. As such, it should be of value to applicants for use of genetically-engineered organisms in agriculture mainly, to regulators and risk assessors in national authorities for their biosafety assessments, as well as the wider scientific community. More information on this OECD programme is found at BioTrack online (www.oecd.org/biotrack).

    Draft Guidance Document on IATA for Eye Hazard Potential

    The objective of the present Guidance Document (GD) is to establish an Integrated 2 Approach to Testing and Assessment (IATA) for hazard identification of serious eye 3 damage and eye irritation potential of test chemicals (or the absence thereof) that 4 provides adequate information for classification and labelling according to the United 5 Nations Globally Harmonised System (UN GHS, 2015).
