This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used in the coatings industry (paints, lacquers and varnishes), to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals into the environment.

This document is a report of the expert consultation held on 20 October 2010 with the aim to evaluate a set of structural alerts for estimating covalent binding of chemicals with proteins. This consultation was held based on a key recommendation from the OECD Workshop on Structural Alerts for the OECD (Q)SAR Application Toolbox held in May 2008 [see ENV/JM/MONO(2009)4]. The resulting set of alerts will be implemented in version 2.0 of
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.
Within the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme, sponsors (countries or companies) assess and review industrial chemicals, which can include high production volume (HPV) or non-HPV, existing or new chemicals. Biocides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and food additives are generally not covered in these activities or are assessed in other OECD programmes.
A 1991 Council Decision resulted in the initiation of cooperatively assessing hazard and exposure of high production volume (HPV) chemicals using the Screening Information Data Set (SIDS) at OECD. In 1998, to coordinate with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) initiative, OECD and member countries began to focus on initial hazard assessments of HPV chemicals to increase transparency, efficiency and productivity,
This document is the report of the OECD Seminar Pesticide Risk Reduction Strategies near/in Residential Areas that was held on 17 November, 2009 in Tokyo, Japan.
This report presents the results and recommendations of an OECD Seminar on risk reduction through prevention, detection and control of the illegal international trade in agricultural pesticides.
This document outlined the draft descriptions and tables for the recognition of donors for consideration by the Management Group.
With the goal of harmonizing the calculation of MRLs across the OECD, the OECD has developed a MRL Calculator. It is made up of a simple to use xls. A User Guide and a Statistiscal White Paper are available to help with the use of the Calculator.
