Ce présent 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 régelementation des pesticides, y compris à celles qui ne disposeraient pas de prescriptions, orientations, ou politiques propres dans ce domaine
La conformité est d’une grande importance pour la réduction des risques liés aux pesticides et pour le bon fonctionnement des systèmes de réglementation des pesticides qui pourraient être compromis en cas de non-conformité. Le présent document traite des aspects suivants du cycle de vie des pesticides: fabrication et intégrité du produit, distribution (transport et vente compris), utilisation du produit, stockage du produit et le recyclage et élimination des contenants.
The reports are available by categories: Council Acts; Guidance Manuals (including Global PRTRs, Data application, Release estimation techniques, Workshop reports); and now include an information flyer related to the PRTR programme.
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.
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.
