The safety of Manufactured Nanomaterials is an important concern impacting regulatory bodies throughout the world. Due to their size, Manufactured Nanomaterials may require additional testing beyond the standard suite of tests used for other chemicals, to ensure that the impact on human health and the environment is fully understood - download Manufactured Nanomaterials Dossiers or search for Tested Endpoints.
Ce guide a pour objectif de formuler des orientations pour la promotion et le contrôle de la conformité, qui s’adressent notamment aux autorités chargées de la réglementation des pesticides, y compris à celles qui ne disposeraient pas de prescriptions, orientations ou politiques propres dans ce domaine.
De nouvelles directives sur les pesticides ont été finalisées afin d'harmoniser la façon dont les études sur la dissipation en champ sont menées dans différentes régions du monde.
These documents contain elements for use during the regulatory assessment of a particular food/feed product such as those derived from transgenic organisms.
This work aims to assist countries evaluating the potential risks of transgenic products, ensure high safety standards, and foster mutual understanding of relevant regulations.
Participants from 15 countries attended the Workshop on Developmental Neurotoxicity: The use of non-animal test methods for regulatory purposes” on 18 October 2016, in Belgium. The event, co-organised by the OECD and the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), focused on opportunities and challenges related to alternative methods for testing and assessing the DNT potential of chemicals.
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.
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.
