OECD has published a report of a survey that provides information and recommendations on how to deal with stocks of “obsolete” pesticides in OECD member (and partner) countries. Such pesticides’ obsolescence can arise for a number of reasons including product deterioration, product de-registration, and product revision.
The report presents the potential of new nanomaterials and highlights the remaining challenges for their safe and sustainable introduction in the tyre industry.
OECD work on adaptation to climate change focus on three main areas: (1) Economic aspects of adaptation; (2) Adaptation and development; and (3) Adaptation in OECD countries. The summary record and speakers' presentations are now available for the Expert Workshop on Adaptation Financing and Implementation, held on 18-19 June 2014.
This guidance document proposes an integrated approach on testing and assessment for skin corrosion and irritation, in view of replacing the "testing and evaluation strategy" provided in the supplement to OECD TG404 (to be updated), provides information on key performance characteristics of each information source comprising the IATA, and guidance on how to integrate information for decision making for classification and labeling.
This series is designed to make available to a wider readership selected studies on environmental issues related to climate change, country environmental performance, environmental-economic modelling, environmental innovation, environmental taxes and green investment. Now released: "Exploring potential data sources for estimating private climate finance".
An efficient transport sector is important for economic development and for the wellbeing of people. However, transport activities can generate various negative environmental impacts. The OECD has carried out several studies to identify instruments and other approaches for reconciling transport and environmental policies.
This webpage gives information about a series of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) raised by testing laboratories about implementation of GLP, along with responses prepared by the Working Group on GLP. This current version concerns questions about Quality Assurance, and the FAQ document will be amended, from time-to-time, to include new questions and answers.
This report includes the conclusions and recommendation of an expert workshop on Physical-Chemical Properties of Manufactured Nanomaterials and Test Guidelines organized by OECD’s Working Party on Manufactured Nanomaterials. The workshop addressed issues relevant to the physical-chemical properties of manufactured nanomaterials from a regulatory perspective point with a view to the need for new or adapted test guidelines.
This is the OECD Good Laboratory Practice homepage. The primary objective of the OECD Principles of GLP is to ensure the generation of high quality and reliable test data related to the safety of industrial chemical substances.
Following the 2010 request by Kazakhstan to initiate an NPD on water, the NPD process started in the country in 2012. This page provides further information about the NPD process and its achievements in Kazakhstan.
