The Covid-19 pandemic has challenged regulators, health professionals, industry and the public in responding quickly, decisively and efficiently to the impact and consequences of this virus. This report looks at the lessons learned during the Covid-19 crisis to investigate approaches for possible future emergency situations.
The Chemical Safety and Biosafety Progress Report is released every eight months. Its purpose is to provide an update on the projects, events and activities. Information on new publications as well as dates and venues of upcoming events and meetings are given.
This report is a cross-country analysis of BAT Reference Documents for three selected industrial sectors; thermal power plants (TPP), cement production and textile manufacturing. It examines seven BREFs for TPP, five BREFs for cement production, and six BREFs for textile manufacturing from countries/organisations, including China, India, Japan, South Korea, the US, the EU, Belgium (Flanders), and the World Bank.
GLP issues raised by testing labs are covered in this comprehensive list of questions and answers, recently updated with questions related to: Test Facility organisation and personnel, Quality Assurance, Equipment and computerized systems, Test items, reference items and samples/specimens (Biologicals, GMOs, etc.), SOPs, Management of the study, Histopathology, Archives and E-Archives and Monitoring Test Facility compliance by GLP CMAs.
This OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on emissions of metals during primary and secondary smelting and waste incineration, which cover recycling of electrical and electronic waste. It thus aims to derive the relevant emission factors of metals during smelting, waste incineration and from boilers.
