This collection of case studies includes a variety of studies where chemicals are grouped together for a risk assessment. This addition improves accessibility to risk assessment data for governments, scientists and industry.
28-29 June 2021: The Seminar covered the efficacy evaluation of the different categories of biopesticides, new application techniques, efficacy evaluation of biopesticides based on plant defence inducers (PDI), comparison of efficacy requirements for biostimulants vs. biopesticides, how to evaluate different Integrated Pest Management (IPM) modules, and registration pathways with limited or no evaluation of efficacy.
On 16 March, the OECD and the EU Joint Research Centre organised a webinar to discuss the report on Addressing evidence needs in chemicals policy and regulation. It presented the main findings of the report and a set of actionable recommendations, including how knowledge management systems can be designed in a user-centric fashion to address current challenges, with the Adverse Outcome Pathway framework being a prominent example.
Le monde produit aujourd’hui deux fois plus de déchets plastiques qu’il y a vingt ans, et ils sont en grande partie mis en décharge, incinérés ou rejetés dans l’environnement, seuls 9 % étant effectivement recyclés, constate l’OCDE dans un nouveau rapport.
Natural Hazards Triggering Technological Accidents (Natech) are accidents triggered by the impact of a natural hazard, such as earthquake, flood, or storm, on a hazardous installation, and which involves the release of hazardous substances, fires or explosions. This brochure aims to raise awareness of Natech risks and the challenges associated with their management.
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 OECD Emission Scenario Document (ESD) is intended to provide information on the sources, use patterns, and potential release pathways of vapour degreasing chemicals. The document presents standard approaches for estimating environmental releases and occupational exposures.
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.
