The OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals are a collection of the most relevant internationally agreed test methods used by government, industry and independent laboratories to determine the safety of chemicals and chemical preparations, including pesticides and industrial chemicals.
Ten new and updated Test Guidelines have been adopted by Council on 22 July 2010
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.

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.
