On 8 November 2023, the OECD organised a webinar to explore the current understanding of the Best Available Techniques (BAT) approaches and their future. It addressed key challenges, opportunities for the identification of promising emerging techniques for effective pollution prevention and reduction and the importance of cross-collaboration between regulatory authorities, industries, research institutes and technology providers.
9 November 2023 at 13:00 - 14:30 CET / 07:00 - 08:30 EST | The webinar provided an overview of the new OECD (Q)SAR Assessment Framework for evaluating the scientific validity of (Q)SAR models and introduced new principles for evaluating (Q)SAR predictions: input, applicability domain, reliability, and fitness for purpose.
Two webinars were held by the OECD, which aimed to provide training and orientation on method validation at the OECD, and to help researchers become familiar with method readiness evaluation.
Join us on Thursday 26 September 2019 @ 1 pm (CEST, Paris time) / 7 am (EDT time) to learn about efforts, successes and challenges in eliminating per and polyfluorinated chemicals of environmental concern from the life cycle of consumer products.
Policy instruments can be applied to improve the sustainability of plastics, including regulations, market-based instruments, information and voluntary tools. The report reviews the use of these instruments, provides good practice examples, such as product taxes and charges, eco-design standards, extended producer responsibility and environmental product labels, as well as discussing opportunities for their future applications.
Join us on 15 May 2019 @ 1 pm (Paris time) / 7 am (EST time) to learn about the latest Risk Reduction Initiatives for Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances undertaken by Canada and the United States.
The OECD Conference on Genome Editing: Applications in Agriculture – Implications for Health, Environment and Regulation will explore the regulatory considerations raised by genome edited products, with the aim to favour a coherent policy approach to facilitate innovation involving genome editing. More information on the programme and the speakers.
This document compiles the operational plans 2009-2012 for the eight projects of the WPMN and it is published on the responsibility of the Joint Meeting of the Chemicals Committee and the Working Party on Chemicals, Pesticides and Biotechnology of the OECD.
This symposium will be held on 23rd April 2007 in Tokyo, Japan. A two-day OECD WPMN meeting - OECD Workshop on the Sponsorship Programme for the Testing of Manufactured Nanomaterials - will follow this event to discuss the sponsorship programme for the testing of manufactured nanomaterials.
The conference, to be held in Dublin on 2 November 2007, will focus upon the emerging discipline of nanotoxicology and its implications to the broader nanotechnology community. Particular emphasis will be given to the food, environment and medical sectors. The conference will bring together a number of international leaders in the area of nanotoxicology and represents the first conference on this novel topic to be held in Ireland. It
