Children can be more vulnerable to environmental hazards posed by chemicals, due to their physiological differences and unique behaviour. This document presents the results of a survey conducted in 2021, aiming to identify currently available methodologies for assessing the risk of chemicals to children’s health and also identify possible needs for additional or missing parameters and for further guidance documents.
This Guidance provides concise and practical information to help organisations identify the type of chemicals information shared on the eChemPortal - the Global Portal to Information on Chemical Substances and to define the best strategy to participate as a data source.
This report presents current approaches used to derive biomonitoring values and provides globally harmonised recommendations on how-to derive and apply occupational biomonitoring assessment values. It is relevant for occupational health professionals and occupational safety and health specialists, regulatory authorities, industry, researchers, and stakeholders interested in addressing occupational and general population biomonitoring.
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.
This new case study illustrates an assessment workflow based on various types of non-animal test methods was published in 2021. In addition, an updated document that includes considerations of using methods in IATA was also published following the 6th case study review cycle.
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.
Access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment and management of chemicals and description of the workflow of environmental risk assessment and management with links to relevant OECD products that can be used in each step of the workflow.
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.
L'OCDE travaille avec les pays membres et autres parties prenantes à coopérer évaluer les dangers des produits chimiques industriels pour générer de l'OCDE ont convenu-évaluations qui sont à la disposition du public et qui peuvent être utilisés pour l'établissement des priorités, l'évaluation des risques et d'autres activités au sein de programmes nationaux ou régionaux.
