This report analyses the rigorous and comprehensive system for assessing and managing chemicals that helps governments and industry save about EUR 150 million each year, through "work sharing" facilitated by the OECD.
Brazil has joined an OECD chemical testing agreement that allows countries to share and accept each other’s results, saving money for governments and industry and reducing the risk of trade disputes.

The workshop provided advice on the role and value of a PRTR as a tool for environmental policy and addressed the challenges and opportunities for introducing a system in the region that meets national needs. The meeting agenda and list of participants can be found in Annex 1. A list of papers submitted to the workshop can be found in Annex II.
The purpose of this document is to identify the similarities and differences between the emission estimation methods used in PRTR’s and ESD’s. The applicability of PRTR methods to the risk assessments is also evaluated. The study is focused on two sectors: pulp and paper manufacture, and textile wet processing.
This document, Framework for Selecting and Applying PRTR Release Estimation Techniques provides information on: i) the general principles for producing release data; and ii) the selection and application of the various release estimation techniques to different industrial sectors. The document can also be used for estimating transfers of pollutants.

The aim of this document is to identify relevant releases to the environment from the use phase of end-products, to present techniques to quantify the releases, as well as to provide information to OECD countries on how to include these releases into PRTRs if they so wish. This is Part 4 of the Resource Compendium of PRTR Release Estimation Techniques.
