This document constitutes the report of a workshop which was held at the OECD with the purpose of both improving the general understanding of “New Plant Breeding Techniques ” (and products derived through them) and sharing experiences of the environmental risk/safety assessment of these products.
This work describes the various endeavours of OECD countries to develop harmonised methodologies for birds toxicity testing, including the successful outcomes or the reasons for stopping activities in some cases. The work has required commitment from countries and industry in terms of staffing and laboratory resources to perform experimental testing and generate data.
A new report has been launched by the OECD Ad Hoc Group on Substitution of Harmful Chemicals. The report identifies where gaps remain in terms of possible missing tools, guidance and research to support stakeholders engaged in alternatives assessment and substitution of harmful chemicals.
This is a list of publications under the OECD Series on Emission Scenario Documents (ESDs).

Cette légumineuse, la plus consommée mondialement, peut être modifiée génétiquement pour résistance aux herbicides, insectes et maladies. Éléments détaillés utiles pour évaluer sa sécurité biologique, dont: taxonomie, espèces parentes, pratiques culturales, reproduction, génétique, hybridation, écologie, ravageurs et maladies.
Ce document présente une étude de cas en utilisant des nanoparticules d'argent, qui vise à répondre à la dissolution comme fonction de la chimie de surface des nanoparticules dans les évaluations des risques réglementaires.
The OECD has published fundamental and guiding principles to facilitate the application of QSAR methods to the risk assessment of chemicals. The main focus is on the critical role of mechanistic consideration in improving various (Q)SAR approaches and possible integrative approaches of combining chemoinformatics and bioinformatics.
