Software to be used for Test Guidelines 305 and 318
This third webinar in the series of Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs) was organised on Thursday 30 January 2020. It focused on the core information and telecommunication technologies applications that were built to support AOP development, management and dissemination. Tools and technical tips to facilitate scientific knowledge assembling and evaluations were also be presented.
These are the OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals: Testing and Assessment Series Monographs.
The OECD Guidelines are a unique tool for assessing the potential effects of chemicals on human health and the environment. They are regularly updated with the assistance of thousands of national experts from OECD member countries. The current deadline for comments is set on 10 February 2020 for the Draft Guidance Document for the testing and interpretation of data on dissolution rate and dispersion stability of nanomaterials.
Interested parties are invited to send their comments on the Test Guideline No. 458 for Androgen Receptor Transaction. Comments should be sent by 31 January 2020.

On 11 February 2019, the OECD organised a webinar to learn and discuss new methodologies on liver models for induction, clearance and toxicity. The speakers presented the benefits compared to existing methods in place, the types of chemicals tested, the results obtained, the transferability and economic aspects for routine testing, and any known limitation to the technologies and their applications.
The OECD has published the Revised Guidance Document 150 on Standardised Test Guidelines for Evaluating Chemicals for Endocrine Disruption originally published in 2012 and updated in 2018 to reflect new and updated OECD test guidelines, as well as reflect on scientific advances in the use of test methods and assessment of the endocrine activity of chemicals.
The first report is a synthesis from a Workshop on Approaches to Support Substitution and Alternatives Assessment, which discussed approaches used to support alternative assessments and substitution. The second report is a Cross Country Analysis of Approaches to Support Alternatives Assessment and Substitution of Chemicals of Concern that describes a list of approaches developed across countries and by different stakeholders.
