Ten new Test Guidelines and six updated Test Guidelines have been adopted by Council on 7 September 2009
These are the OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals: Testing and Assessment Series Monographs.
OECD has devised an innovative product, the (Q)SAR Application Toolbox, to estimate the hazardous properties of chemicals by analysing their molecular structure.
Argentina becomes a Provisional Adherent to MAD Council Decisions
This document provides guidance on the residue analytical methods. Analytical methods are used to generate the data for estimating dietary exposure assessments, to establish Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs), and to determine processing factors.
This for-sale publication unites all 14 of the OECD documents related to Good Laboratory Practice and compliance monitoring, and, in the Annex, reproduces the three OECD Council Decisions related to the Mutual Acceptance of Data in the Assessment of Chemicals.
In November 2004, the OECD member countries agreed on the principles for validating (quantitative) structure-activity relationship [(Q)SAR] models for their use in regulatory assessment of chemical safety.
(Q)SARs are methods for estimating the toxicity and other properties of a chemical from its molecular structure.
OECD Member countries information regarding GLP on the Internet.
This document is intended as a general guide to the analysis and evaluation of data from chronic exposures of toxicity test species to pesticides and other chemicals. It also outlines the kind of information an independent assessment of toxicity studies should encompass.
Since 1997 a procedure through which non-OECD countries can adhere to the MAD system has been embodied in a Council Decision (Council Decision on the Adherence of Non-Member Countries to the Council Acts Related to the Mutual Acceptance of Data i...
