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 The current deadline for comments is set on 10 February 2020 for the Draft Guidance Document for the testing and interpretation of data on dissolution rate and dispersion stability of nanomaterials.
This document captures and examines schemes used internationally for prioritising chemicals for risk assessment and/or risk management, and identifies commonalities, differences, lessons learned and areas for improvement. Based on this analysis, it offers guiding principles and best practices to consider within prioritisation schemes.
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.
