Access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment and management of chemicals and description of the workflow of environmental risk assessment and management with links to relevant OECD products that can be used in each step of the workflow.
The OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals is a collection of about 150 of the most relevant internationally agreed testing methods used by government, industry and independent laboratories to identify and characterise potential hazards of chemicals. Every year new and updated Test Guidelines are adopted to meet the regulatory needs in OECD member countries. The most recent Test Guidelines were adopted in July 2016.
A Pollutant Release and Transfer Register (PRTR) is a publicly accessible database or inventory of chemicals or pollutants released to air, water and soil and transferred off-site for treatment. Find out more: What hazardous chemical substances and pollutants are being released to the environment or transferred off-site? How much is being released or transferred off-site over time? Where the releases occur? and by whom?
This paper reviews the latest climate projections for West Africa and considers alternative ways in which the knowledge generated from climate science can be understood in the context of preparing for an uncertain future that provides practical help for decision makers.
The IOMC Toolbox is a tool enabling countries to identify the most appropriate and efficient actions to solve specific national problems related to chemicals management.
These four current EHS briefs show the objectives, outcomes and benefits of the Pesticides, (Q)SARs, MAD and PFCs programmes.

This page contains a list of the Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals.
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.
