    Safety Assessment of Transgenic Organisms in the Environment, Volume 9 - OECD Consensus Documents on the Biology of Crops: Apple, Safflower, Rice

    Volume 9 of the Series compiles the biosafety consensus documents developed by the OECD Working Party on the Harmonisation of Regulatory Oversight in Biotechnology from 2019 to 2021. It deals with the biology of APPLE, SAFFLOWER and RICE, three important crops for agriculture and consumption worldwide. For each plant species, the book includes elements of taxonomy, morphology, centres of origin, life cycle, reproductive biology, genetics, outcrossing, crop production and cultivation practices, interaction with other organisms, main pests and pathogens, and biotechnological developments. The science-based information collated here is available for use during the risk assessment of transgenic varieties intended for release in the environment. Prepared by authorities from OECD Members and other economies associated with the work, this publication should be of value to crop breeders, applicants for agricultural production of new varieties of apple, safflower and rice, national regulators and risk assessors when conducting biosafety assessments on these varieties obtained from modern biotechnology, as well as the wider scientific community. More information is found at BioTrack Online.

    Webinar Series on Emerging Science to Improve Chemical Safety

    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.

    La pollution plastique ne cesse de croître tandis que la gestion et le recyclage des déchets sont à la traîne, selon l’OCDE

    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.

    Risks from Natural Hazards at Hazardous Installations (Natech)

    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.

    A Chemicals Perspective on Designing with Sustainable Plastics - Goals, Considerations and Trade-offs

    The development of plastic products does not systematically take sustainability, particularly from a chemicals perspective, into account. This report seeks to enable the creation of inherently sustainable plastic products by integrating sustainable chemistry thinking in the design process. By applying a chemicals lens during the plastic material selection process, designers and engineers can make informed decisions to incorporate sustainable plastic during the conceptualisation phase of their products. The report provides an integrated approach to sustainable plastic selection from a chemicals perspective, and identifies a set of generalisable sustainable design goals, life cycle considerations and trade-offs. At a more granular level, considerations are identified for each life-cycle phase, which are brought together as a whole-product assessment and optimisation taking the full life cycle into account. The report also considers trade-offs that will need to be carefully balanced in the design phase and reflection on implications of design choices. Ultimately, the report helps to equip designers and engineers with knowledge of relevant chemical considerations when selecting sustainable plastic, supporting better outcomes and a more transparent process.
