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.
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
These documents focus on the biology of organisms (such as plants, trees or micro-organisms) or introduced novel traits.
Documents in the Series on Testing and Assessment on the subject of Emission and Exposure.
New harmonised guidance published on how to conduct studies which demonstrate the transformation, transport and fate of pesticides under representative use conditions. This guidance document along with the Europe-North America Soil Geographic Information for Pesticide Studies database which has been developed in parallel, provide an opportunity for a regulator in one country to evaluate a study conducted at a foreign site.
The safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials is an important concern impacting regulatory bodies throughout the world. Due to their size, Manufactured Nanomaterials may require additional testing beyond the standard suite of tests used for other chemicals, to ensure that the impact on human health and the environment is fully understood - download Manufactured Nanomaterials Dossiers or search for Tested Endpoints.
GLP issues raised by testing labs are covered in this comprehensive list of questions and answers, recently updated with questions related to Validation of Software Programmes which Support OECD Test Guidelines
This March newsletter provides an update on the recent events and activities of the Environment, Health and Safety Programme of the OECD.
Guidance on principles for reporting defined approaches within IATA and an associated template have been published. A second guidance document illustrates how the reporting templates can be used to document a number of defined approaches (and information sources used within) in the area of skin sensitisation. This is exemplified via 12 case studies for skin sensitisation.
New OECD report highlights facility ageing as a multi-aspect phenomenon. One of the best known aspects of ageing is physical ageing of equipment, but this is just one facet of ageing facilities and only one associated risk factor. Everything related to a site and its processes can age, including equipment, people, procedures and technology. The report also lists potential risk drivers drawn from analysis of ageing-related accidents.
