This website gives information about the regulatory approaches adopted by OECD member countries to mitigate pesticide risks to insect pollinators. Following a survey of OECD member countries, it was concluded that mitigation of risks to insect pollinators is important to all its member countries, and that mitigation is a critical component of balancing the benefits of plant protection products with potential risks to insect pollinators.
The OECD has published the second edition of the guidance on grouping of chemicals. This edition has been augmented with experience and examples encountered in the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme. It also introduces new or revised guidance on elaborating the analogue and category approach, quantitative and qualitative read-across, justifying read-across, and using bioprofiling results for grouping chemicals.
The OECD has published a guidance for characterising oleochemical substances. The method presented gives guidance on how these complex substances can be characterised in a way that their composition is accurately and consistently reflected to ensure that substances with the same chemical composition, manufactured in different countries, can be characterised with the same description for hazard assessment purposes.
This document provides information on the sources, use patterns, and potential release pathways of chemicals used in the manufacture of thermal and carbonless copy paper. It presents approaches for estimating the environmental releases of and occupational exposures to additives and components used in thermal and carbonless copy paper coatings.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in agriculture is high on the agenda in many countries. IPM is about promoting the sustainable use of pesticides in the context of challenges including climate change, increasing demand for food, feed and fibres and pest resistance. OECD has launched the IPM Hub, an online focal point for information on Integrated Pest Management.
Safeguarding people’s health and the environment through responsible marketing and use of pesticides in agriculture relies on regulation, and compliance with this regulation. OECD have launched an online resource to help regulators in different countries share their experiences and best practice and to act as a portal for information on pesticide compliance and enforcement.
Quatre nouveaux didacticiels sont disponibles, illustrés avec des exemples concernant l’utilisation des fonctionnalités de l’outil d’interrogation, le programme d’activités AOP sur la sensibilisation de la peau (étude des voies d’effets néfastes), l’information fournie par la base de données CHEM de l’ECHA et la capacité à analyser des structures tautomères.
Ce document comprend les conclusions et les recommandations issues d'un atelier qui portait sur l'écotoxicologie et le devenir environnemental des nanomatériaux manufacturés, et en particulier l'applicabilité des lignes directrices de l'OCDE liée à ces sujets. Suite aux recommandations, un certain nombre de développements pour des documents guide sont en cours à l'OCDE.
