The OECD developed the BioTrack Product Database which accommodates Unique Identifiers to each transgenic (or genetically engineered) plant that is approved for commercial use, including planting and food/feed use. These Unique Identifiers are intended to be used as "keys" to access information of each transgenic product in this database and to ensure the safety of modern biotechnology products
These documents focus on the biology of organisms (such as plants, trees or micro-organisms) or introduced novel traits.
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.
