OECD Guidance Documents for Pesticide Registration
The agreed guidelines establish two formats:
one for governments to use when writing their evaluation reports (or monographs)
one for industry to use when making data submissions (or dossiers)
The formats do not require OECD countries to make the same regulatory decisions. Rather their purpose is to facilitate registration by minimising duplication of effort for both industry and governments.

OECD Guidance For Industry Data Submissions for Pheromones and Other Semiochemicals and their Activie Substances (Dossier Guidance for Pheromones and Other Semiochemicals)
Series on Pesticides No. 16 (2003)
Pesticide producers, who are responsible for testing any pesticide they want to register, usually have to present registration submissions in different formats for different OECD countries. The OECD common format should therefore reduce redundancies in the preparation of submissions by industry.
The format for government evaluations should change the way regulatory authorities in OECD countries write their evaluation reports on the tests submitted by industry. It should help improve the quality of review reports by ensuring that they are clear, complete, well-organised and transparent. This enables governments to use each other's reports more easily than in the past, saving time and resources. However, governments continue to apply their own criteria when making decisions.
