Testing of chemicals

Webinar Series on Testing and Assessment Methodologies

 

The OECD webinars on Testing and Assessment Methodologies focus on selected ongoing projects that will result in the short to medium term in new methodologies to test and assess chemicals. These free webinars are open to potential end users among regulators and contract research organisations who want to get familiar with new standards and approaches. Video recordings of our webinars are made available online afterwards.

REGISTER TO THE UPCOMING WEBINAR ON NANOMATERIALS 

 Webinar on Nanomaterials: Guidance document No. 317: Aquatic and sediment ecotoxicity testing of nanomaterials

WHEN: Tuesday 26 January 15:00 CET / 09:00 EST

Just like for any other chemical substance, nanomaterials have to be assessed for their safety for commercialisation of nanomaterial-enabled products.

Join our webinar where we will discuss the scope and use of the recently released guidance document No. 317 on aquatic and sediment ecotoxicity testing of nanomaterials. The guidance addresses practical aspects of carrying out valid tests on nanomaterials, and modifications or additions to OECD Test Guidelines procedures intended to improve the accuracy of test results.

 

Watch our WEBINAR on Training needs, resources, and opportunities for Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs)

On 23 and 30 November 2020, the OECD hosted a webinar on training needs, resources, and opportunities for Adverse Outcomes Pathways (AOPs). This interactive webinar discussed opportunities for expanding the AOP community of trainers to meet current needs, considering all available resources. 

The objectives of this webinar were to:

  • outline past and current training activities 
  • receive your input on experiences in conducting and/or receiving training; and
  • gather your views, needs and ideas for the provision of training in the future.
