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.
This database includes information regarding products derived using modern biotechnology, e.g. transgenic plants, which have been approved for commerical application, as well as some plants with novel traits produced by conventional breeding or mutagenesis.
The OECD’s Chemicals Committee held a Special Session on the Potential Implications of Manufactured Nanomaterials for Human Health and Environmental Safety, 7th June 2005.
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) describes emission scenarios for three parts of the life cycle for antifouling products used on ship and boat hulls: (1) application; (2) service life; and (3) removal. The primary aim of this ESD is for use in risk assessments in notification and authorisation procedures in regulatory frameworks used in OECD countries. The ESD is intended to be used for general risk assessment and is

This report contains the results of an analysis of member countries' case studies concerning persistent and bioaccumulative pesticides in OECD Member countries that were conducted in 2003, with the following objectives:
- establish the differences in how member countries identify persistent (P) and bioaccumulating (B) substances as such
- establish the differences in how member countries take persistence (P) and bioaccumulation (B)
