This short survey aims to gather feedback from a wide range of stakeholders on the OECD Guiding Principles for Chemical Accidents Prevention, Preparedness. The feedback received from this survey will help us making sure the new version is an improvement from the past and that it meets current needs of users.
Three Draft Revised Guidance Documents are open for public comments until September 2017 on Good in Vitro Method 2 Practices (GIVIMP); on Standardised Test Guidelines for 8 Evaluating Chemicals for Endocrine Disruption; and on Aqueous-phase Aquatic Toxicity Testing of Difficult to Test Substances and on Residues in Rotational Crops.
New deadlines for comments on the Test Guidelines: 1) Reconstructed human Corneal Epithelium for Eye hazard potential, including the LabCyte model by 18 August; and 2) Repeated Dose 90-day Oral Toxicity Study by 29 September 2017.
Per- and poly-fluorinated alkyl substances (PFASs) are substances that have many manufacturing and industrial applications because they impart useful properties (fire resistance and oil, stain, grease and water repellency). Some of the properties are associated with environmental and human health concerns. To support a global transition towards safer alternatives, this Portal facilitates the exchange of information.
IPCheM is a single access point for locating and accessing chemical monitoring data across all media in the EU. Operated by the European Commission in collaboration with European Union Agencies, it is developed to address the lack of information on the chemical exposure and burden on the humans and the environment, recognised as the major gap in the knowledge base for chemical policies in several policy documents in the past 15 years.
Hazard Assessment of Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and its Salts for human health and the environment, as a result of its investigation in the OECD Existing Chemicals Programme.
The OECD assist governments to implement policies and practices that embody Best Available Techniques (or similar concepts) to prevent and control industrial emissions.
L'OCDE travaille avec les pays membres et autres parties prenantes à coopérer évaluer les dangers des produits chimiques industriels pour générer de l'OCDE ont convenu-évaluations qui sont à la disposition du public et qui peuvent être utilisés pour l'établissement des priorités, l'évaluation des risques et d'autres activités au sein de programmes nationaux ou régionaux.
With a view to assisting the evaluation of integrated approaches to testing and assessment (IATA) in regulatory decision-making within OECD Member Countries, this guidance document provides guidance on the reporting of defined approaches to testing and assessment in the area of skin sensitisation using the adverse outcome pathway (AOP) as a conceptual framework. Annex 1 (page 25) outlines twelve illustrative case studies for skin sensitisation and Annex 2 (page 279) lists information sources used within the case studies.
The OECD developed the BioTrack Product Database which accommodates Unique Identifiers to each transgenic (or genetically engineered) plant that is approved for commercial use, including planting and food/feed use. These Unique Identifiers are intended to be used as "keys" to access information of each transgenic product in this database and to ensure the safety of modern biotechnology products
