    Saving Costs in Chemicals Management - How the OECD Ensures Benefits to Society

    The chemical industry is one of the largest industrial sectors in the world and is expected to grow fourfold by 2060. Indeed modern life without chemicals would be inconceivable. Given the potential environmental and human health risks from exposure to chemicals, governments and industry have a major responsibility to ensure that chemicals are produced and used safely.The OECD assists countries in developing and implementing policies and instruments that protect human health and the environment, and in making their systems for managing chemicals as efficient as possible. To eliminate duplication of work and avoid non-tariff barriers to trade, emphasis has been on developing shared frameworks for gathering and assessing information on potential chemical risks. The time-tested OECD Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD) system provides a major basis for generating savings to governments and industry. This report provides an overview of the benefits and estimates the total savings from OECD work to be more than EUR 309 million per year.

    “What will a changing ocean mean to us, our jobs and markets?”

    The iconic ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau once said “For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realise that, in order to survive, he must protect it.”

    Series on Testing and Assessment: Testing for Endocrine Disrupters

    The series on endocrine disrupters provides common tools and guidances for testing the effects of endocrine disrupting chemicals on the oestrogen, androgen and thyroid hormone systems. Using these validated methodologies, regulatory authorities can use internationally harmonised tools to evaluate chemicals of concern for human health and/or the environment as well as testing costs.

    Guidance Document on Good In Vitro Method Practices (GIVIMP)

    In the past several decades, there has been a substantial increase in the availability of in vitro test methods for evaluating chemical safety in an international regulatory context.  To foster confidence in in vitro alternatives to animal testing, the test methods and conditions under which data are generated must adhere to defined standards to ensure resulting data are rigorous and reproducible.  Good In vitro Method Practices (GIVIMP) for the development and implementation of in vitro methods for regulatory use in human safety assessment aims to help reduce the uncertainties in cell and tissue-based in vitro method derived chemical safety predictions.  GIVIMP provides guidance for test method developers and end users of resulting data on key elementes of in vitro methods. GIVIMP tackles ten important aspects related to in vitro work: (1) Roles and responsibilities, (2) Quality considerations, (3) Facilities (4) Apparatus, material and reagents, (5) Test systems, (6) Test and reference/control items, (7) Standard operating procedures (SOPs), (8) Performance of the method, (9) Reporting of results, (10) Storage and retention of records and materials.

    Series on Pesticides

    This document aims to assist government and industry assessors involved in the registration of microbial pesticides in the determination of whether microbial pesticides could be associated with known or as yet uncharacterised ‘new’ secondary metabolites. A background document that was also published as Annex to the main document aims to provide clarity on issues and terminology related to microbial secondary metabolites.
