This Guidance Document is addressed to those who are involved in risk assessment and management of chemicals called POPs (persistent organic pollutants) or PBTs (persistent and bio-accumulating toxics). It is about using multimedia models, i.e. generic evaluative models that can calculate overall environmental persistence (Pov) and potential for long-range transport (LTRP) covering multiple compartments such as air, water, sediment
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns and release pathways of chemicals used in the treatment of water in a number of areas to assist in the estimation of releases of chemicals to the environment.
This document is a complement to the Guidance Document on Emission Scenario Documents (OECD Series of Emission Scenario Documents No 1) by focusing emission during service-life of articles. This document was developed by Sweden and reviewed by the OECD Task Force on Environmental Exposure Assessment.

This document is a report of the expert consultation held on 20 October 2010 with the aim to evaluate a set of structural alerts for estimating covalent binding of chemicals with proteins. This consultation was held based on a key recommendation from the OECD Workshop on Structural Alerts for the OECD (Q)SAR Application Toolbox held in May 2008 [see ENV/JM/MONO(2009)4]. The resulting set of alerts will be implemented in version 2.0 of
L'OCDE travaille avec les pays membres et autres parties prenantes à coopérer évaluer les dangers des produits chimiques industriels pour générer de l'OCDE ont convenu-évaluations qui sont à la disposition du public et qui peuvent être utilisés pour l'établissement des priorités, l'évaluation des risques et d'autres activités au sein de programmes nationaux ou régionaux.
Within the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme, sponsors (countries or companies) assess and review industrial chemicals, which can include high production volume (HPV) or non-HPV, existing or new chemicals. Biocides, pesticides, pharmaceuticals and food additives are generally not covered in these activities or are assessed in other OECD programmes.
A 1991 Council Decision resulted in the initiation of cooperatively assessing hazard and exposure of high production volume (HPV) chemicals using the Screening Information Data Set (SIDS) at OECD. In 1998, to coordinate with the International Council of Chemical Associations (ICCA) initiative, OECD and member countries began to focus on initial hazard assessments of HPV chemicals to increase transparency, efficiency and productivity,
