The OECD webinars on Testing and Assessment Methodologies focus on selected ongoing projects that will results in the short to medium term in new methodologies to test and assess chemicals.
Cowpea is a highly-nutritious legume cultivated predominantly in Africa, as well as South America and Asia. The crop is used for food, fodder and green manure. This consensus document provides science-based key insights for novel foods and feeds assessments such as detailed composition (nutrients, anti-nutrients, other constituents), key products, and components suggested for analysis of new varieties for food use and for feed use.
This document outlines various approaches and methodologies for the assessment of risks from combined exposures to multiple chemicals. The document draws from approaches and experience in the regulatory context, and presents elements to consider in the assessment.
The aim of this document is to provide guidance in order to reduce the uncertainties in cell and tissue-based in vitro method derived predictions by applying all necessary good scientific, technical and quality practices from method development to implementation for regulatory use.
This document aims to assist government and industry assessors involved in the registration of microbial pesticides in the determination of whether microbial pesticides could be associated with known or as yet uncharacterised ‘new’ secondary metabolites. A background document that was also published as Annex to the main document aims to provide clarity on issues and terminology related to microbial secondary metabolites.
The Product Release and Exposure Data Warehouse is a Microsoft® Access 2016 database is designed to house existing data on releases of chemicals from, and exposures to, commercial and consumer end products. A number of forms provide a simple approach to data entry and access to the existing data.
On 6 November 2018, the OECD was awarded the Silver Award in the research category at the 2018 Global Chemical Leasing Award for its report on the Economic Features of Chemical Leasing.
On 30 October 2018, Eeva Leinala of the OECD Environment Directorate; Ruth Garcia, Gemma Janer and Marc Torrentellé from LEITAT; and Julio Fierro of the Centro Tecnológico de Investigación Multisectorial presented the MIDWOR-LIFE project that aims to mitigate the environmental, health and safety impacts of current Durable Water & Oil Repellents and available alternatives by looking at their environmental impact & technical performance.
This new version includes changes to align to the OECD Harmonised Templates version Nov. 2017 and the GHS Rev.5 (2015) & GHS Rev.7 (2017). The users will be able to perform your property searches using the same fields as in the most recent OECD Harmonised Templates, equivalent to IUCLID 6.2. Likewise, the classification and labelling search increases alignment with the latest GHS classification revisions.
The webinar will present the MIDWOR-LIFE project that aims to mitigate the environmental, health and safety impacts of current Durable Water and Oil Repellents and available alternatives by looking at their environmental impact and technical performance.
