    Test No. 232: Collembolan Reproduction Test in Soil

    This Test Guideline is designed for assessing the effects of chemicals on the reproduction of collembolans in soil. The parthenogenetic Folsomia candida is the recommended species for use, but an alternative species such as sexually reproducing Folsomia fimetaria could also be used if they meet the validity criteria. This Guideline can be used for testing both water soluble and insoluble substances but it is not applicable to volatile ones. The Guideline aims to determine toxic effects of the test substance on adult mortality and reproductive output expressed as LCx and ECx respectively, or NOEC/LOEC value. The number of treatment concentrations varies depending on endpoints to be determined. For a combined approach to examine both the NOEC/LOEC and ECx, eight concentrations in a geometric series with four replicates for each concentration as well as eight control replicates should be used. In each test vessel, 10 juveniles F. candida (or 10 males and 10 females adults F. fimetaria) should be placed on 30 g of modified OECD artificial soil using a 5 % organic matter content. The duration of a definitive reproduction test is 4 weeks for F. candida or 3 weeks for F. fimetaria.

    Essai n° 483 : Essai d'aberration chromosomique sur spermatogonies de mammifères

    Cet essai mesure les aberrations chromosomiques structurales (de type chromosomique et chromatidique) qui surviennent dans les spermatogonies et devrait par conséquent permettre de prévoir l'induction de mutations héritées dans les cellules germinales. L’essai d’aberration chromosomique pratiqué in vivo sur des spermatogonies de mammifères est destiné à détecter les produits chimiques qui causent des aberrations chromosomiques structurales dans les cellules de spermatogonies de mammifère (1) (2) (3). Par ailleurs, cet essai se prête bien à l’évaluation de la génotoxicité, car, malgré des variations entre les espèces, les facteurs du métabolisme in vivo, la pharmacocinétique et les processus de réparation de l’ADN sont actifs et contribuent aux réponses.

    La Ligne directrice 483 originale a été adoptée en 1997. La présente version modifiée de la ligne directrice reflète les connaissances scientifiques acquises après de nombreuses années d’expérience de cet essai et tient compte des possibilités de l’intégrer ou de le combiner à d’autres études de toxicité ou de génotoxicité.

    La France s’est fixé des objectifs ambitieux en matière d’environnement. Le grand défi est maintenant de tenir ces engagements

    La France a amélioré ses performances environnementales ces dix dernières années : les émissions de gaz à effet de serre, des principaux polluants atmosphériques et les prélèvements d’eau douce ont diminué. Néanmoins, des progrès restent à faire.

    German database Information system für gefährliche Stoffe IGS

    German database Information system für gefährliche Stoffe IGS is now linked to eChemPortal. The IGS provides public access to a variety of information on chemical and microbiological substances mostly in German. The focus is on regulatory information reflecting German and European, as well as Swiss, US and selected other legislation and assessments. Beside this, information on substance data and emergency procedures is available.

    La base de données Risques chimiques de l'EFSA est désormais reliée à eChemPortal. Ce dernier propose des liens vers les publications de l'EFSA sur l'évaluation des produits chimiques contenus dans les aliments, pour animaux également, depuis sa création en 2002. Elles comprennent les avis, les déclarations et les conclusions de l'EFSA sur les pesticides testés par ses experts, son Comité et ses Unités scientifiques.

    Application of Good Laboratory Practice Principles to Computerised Systems

    This new Advisory Document replaces the 1995 consensus document on the Application of the Principles of GLP to Computerised Systems. It retains all of the key text from the original 1995 document, but includes new text to reflect the current state-of-the art in this field.

    Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms in the Environment, Volume 6 - OECD Consensus Documents

    This series represents a compilation of the biosafety consensus documents developed by the OECD Working Group on Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology over the periods 2011-12 (Volume 5) and 2013-15 (Volume 6). Volumes 5 and 6 describe the biology, centres of origin, genetics, hybridisation, production and use, and ecology elements of several crops (sugarcane, cassava, sorghum, common bean, cucurbits) and trees (eucalyptus species). They also provide considerations on pathogenicity factors in assessing the potential adverse health effects of bacteria, and the low level presence of transgenic plants in seed and grain commodities.
    The consensus documents contain information for use during the regulatory assessment of products of modern biotechnology, i.e. transgenic organisms (plants, animals, micro-organisms), when intended for release in the environment. As such, it should be of value to applicants for use of genetically-engineered organisms in agriculture mainly, to regulators and risk assessors in national authorities for their biosafety assessments, as well as the wider scientific community. More information on this OECD programme is found at BioTrack online (www.oecd.org/biotrack).
