Revised Guidance for Grouping of Chemicals. Considers closely related chemicals as a group, or cateogory, rather than as individual chemicals. In this approach, not every chemical needs to be tested for every endpoint.
The main electronic tool for data submission, evaluation and exchange used in the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme is the International Uniform Chemical Information Database (IUCLID). IUCLID is a software program for the administration of data on chemical substances.
The OECD Harmonised Templates are standard data formats for reporting reults of studies with chemicals in order to determine their properties and effects on human health and the environment.

This brochure provides details on the project for eChemPortal: The Global Portal to Information on Chemical Substances. eChemPortal is an internet gateway that provides direct free access to information on the properties of chemicals (physical-chemical properties, environmental fate and behaviour, ecotoxicity, toxicity) as well as to hazard and risk assessments. It allows users to simultaneously search for chemicals contained in

This document describes a pilot phase for a process in which companies can notify to multiple jurisdictions and governments share information when conducting their reviews.
The purpose of this emission scenario document (ESD) is to provide a realistic worst-case emission scenario for chemicals used at kraft pulp mills.
This Emission Scenario Document (ESD) addresses active substances for insecticides, acaricides and products to control other arthropods (in the EU, “product type 18”1), Used in animal housing and man
Emission estimation plays a key role in the risk assessments of chemical pollutants. These assessments have been facilitated with the use of Emission Scenario Documents (ESD’s) developed by member countries of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD).
The purpose of this emission scenario document (ESD) is to provide a realistic worst-case emission scenario for chemicals used at recovered paper mills.
