Version 4.1 of the QSAR Toolbox is now released to include new features (update of existing profilers and metabolic simulators, new database, importation to IUCLID 6, alert performance functionality, new graphical visualisation) and the implementation of past functionalities (save-load documents, load lists of chemicals with CAS or SMILES, access to data and knowledge via Web Services.
IPCheM is a single access point for locating and accessing chemical monitoring data across all media in the EU. Operated by the European Commission in collaboration with European Union Agencies, it is developed to address the lack of information on the chemical exposure and burden on the humans and the environment, recognised as the major gap in the knowledge base for chemical policies in several policy documents in the past 15 years.
OECD works with member countries and other stakeholders to cooperatively assess the hazards of industrial chemicals to generate OECD-agreed assessments that are available to the public and that can be used for priority setting, risk assessment and other activities within national or regional programmes.
Guidance on principles for reporting defined approaches within IATA and an associated template have been published. A second guidance document illustrates how the reporting templates can be used to document a number of defined approaches (and information sources used within) in the area of skin sensitisation. This is exemplified via 12 case studies for skin sensitisation.
The Programme helps member countries and industry pool resources to assess the hazards of over 1200 industrial chemicals in its 22-year history, and has contributed to the development of many tools and techniques used in the assessment of chemicals around the world.
Access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment and management of chemicals and description of the workflow of environmental risk assessment and management with links to relevant OECD products that can be used in each step of the workflow.
German database Information system für gefährliche Stoffe IGS is now linked to eChemPortal. The IGS provides public access to a variety of information on chemical and microbiological substances mostly in German. The focus is on regulatory information reflecting German and European, as well as Swiss, US and selected other legislation and assessments. Beside this, information on substance data and emergency procedures is available.
This is a list of publications under the OECD Series on Emission Scenario Documents (ESDs).
The OECD eChemPortal, a web portal which offers comprehensive information on chemical substances, has been updated to offer better access to chemical classifications according to the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labelling of Chemicals (GHS).
The Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns, and potential release pathways of chemicals used as chemical vapour deposition (CVD) precursors in the semiconductor industry. The document presents standard approaches for estimating environmental releases and occupational exposures, and discusses the typical engineering controls used to mitigate exposure to CVD precursors.
