This Emission Scenario Document (ESD) presents an approach to estimate the emissions of wood preservatives from two stages of their life cycle: 1) application and storage of treated wood prior to shipment, and 2) treated wood-in service. This ESD can be used in the estimation of concentrations in the environment of specific active substances used in wood preservatives.
This document contains guidance for using the summary exposure information reporting formats, which were developed by the OECD Ad Hoc Group on Reporting Summary Exposure Information. The objective of the work of this Ad Hoc Group is to develop flexible formats and guidance for the reporting of summary exposure information (quantitative and qualitative), which can be used in variouschemical assessment programs.
This Guidance Document is addressed to those who are involved in risk assessment and management of chemicals called POPs (persistent organic pollutants) or PBTs (persistent and bio-accumulating toxics). It is about using multimedia models, i.e. generic evaluative models that can calculate overall environmental persistence (Pov) and potential for long-range transport (LTRP) covering multiple compartments such as air, water, sediment
This document includes a draft emission scenario document (ESD) on textilemanufacturing wool mills, submitted by Canada. This document is intended to provide dditional information about the published ESD on Textile Finishing Industry[ENV/JM/MONO(2004)12].
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used in the finishing of metals, to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals into the environment.
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used at Non-integrated Paper Mills, to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals into the environment.

This document is a report of the expert consultation held on 20 October 2010 with the aim to evaluate a set of structural alerts for estimating covalent binding of chemicals with proteins. This consultation was held based on a key recommendation from the OECD Workshop on Structural Alerts for the OECD (Q)SAR Application Toolbox held in May 2008 [see ENV/JM/MONO(2009)4]. The resulting set of alerts will be implemented in version 2.0 of
Within the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme, sponsors (countries or companies) assess and review industrial chemicals, which can include high production volume (HPV) or non-HPV, existing or new chemicals. Biocides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and food additives are generally not covered in these activities or are assessed in other OECD programmes.
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.
