    Biocides publications (Chronological order)

    Biocides are important and contribute to the protection of humans and animals against infectious diseases. However, biocides are designed to affect living organisms negatively. Even if premarket approval already can deliver a high level of protection, knowledge gaps can still remain. This report describes a common understanding of what sustainable use of biocides could entail and different possible aspects of sustainable use.

    OECD Work Related to Bees/Pollinators

    There have been reports these last years of declines in native and managed pollinators in several regions of the world. Potential factors associated with these declines are hypothesised to include habitat destruction, predators, certain agricultural practices, bee management practices, pathogens, climate change, nutrition and pesticides. There is uncertainty regarding the extent to which pesticides contribute to pollinator declines.

    Agricultural Pesticides

    This report provides recommendations on risk assessment considerations for exogenously-applied double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-based products, with a focus on issues relating to data requirements for determining the environmental fate of sprayable RNA molecules and for examining the potential risks to non-target organisms. It provides scientific information and considerations to regulate RNA interference (RNAi) technology for pest control.

    OECD Conference on RNAi based Pesticides

    10-12 April 2019: The conference on RNA interference (RNAi) based pesticides will provide an overview of the current state of the knowledge of RNA interference (RNAi) as it relates to the potential use of this naturally occurring mode of action in agriculture. This will be an efficient route to this information for policy makers, particularly given the large volume of scientific information that is available in the literature.
