This page presents information concerning the minor uses of pesticides.
This document provides guidance on pesticide residue studies and describes differences in OECD countries in livestock feeding practices and diet composition. The data obtained from these studies allow quantifying the transfer of residues from feedstuff to animal and establishing maximum limits which ensure that these residues do not pose unacceptable risks for consumers.

This document presents the outcomes of the 3rd OECD Biopesticide Seminar, held in 2011, that focused on the topic of “botanicals” (also known as plant extracts). The Seminar reviewed a number of scientific and regulatory issues related to the “characterisation and analyses of botanicals for the use in plant protection products”.
This Guidance Document describes how applicants could demonstrate that a proposed new pool and spa disinfectant would satisfy the regulator’s efficacy criteria. While meeting the performance characteristics can be expected to satisfy the regulator’s efficacy requirements, the regulator may choose to consider alternative scientific information and argument aimed at satisfying the efficacy criteria.
This report presents the results and recommendations made by the above mentioned OECD workshop, held in Ottawa, Canada, on 9 11 March 2011.
This document provides the results of an OECD Survey on Integrity of Pesticides at the Manufacturing, Import and Distribution Stages that was carried out in 2009-2010 as part of the OECD pesticide risk reduction activities.
This document was developed based on the need to address the leaching rate of biocides from antifouling products, which is one of the most important parameters to estimate the emission of antifoulants in an environmental risk assessment.
This document dealing with biological pesticides is intended to provide guidance to both industry and regulatory authorities, in the context of applications for the approval of microbial biological control agents (mBCAs), and for the registration of microbial biological control products (mBCPs).
This report presents the results of an OECD Seminar (Paris, May 2010) on biopesticide issues related to the fate in the environment of microbial control agents and their effects on non-target organisms.
