Today, OECD member countries, many partner countries and other stakeholders work together to develop and co-ordinate activities on chemical safety and biosafety on an international basis. One of the core aspects of the work relates to the Mutual Acceptance of Data.
WHAT WE DO
While an important focus of the work is on safety aspects of the production, processing and use of industrial chemicals (test guidelines, good laboratory practice, manufactured nanomaterials), work is carried out on pesticides and biocides, chemical accidents, pollutant release and transfer registers, development co-operation and sound management of chemicals and biotechnology, overseen by the Chemicals and Biotechnology Committee (CBC) and undertaken by many subsidiary bodies.
The Chemicals Programme produces documents, reports and publications on all aspects of its work. The Chemical Safety and Biosafety Progress Report provides an update on the projects, events and activities.
