Deadlines for comments of OECD Guideline For The Testing Of Chemicals.
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.
The purpose of this Series is to provide up-to-date information on the OECD activities related to testing and assessment of chemicals.
Deadline for comments: Draft Guidance Document on Aquatic and Sediment Toxicological Testing of Nanomaterials by 30 October 2018.
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.
The first report describes the linkage between inhibition of complex I of the mitochondrial respiratory chain and motor deficit as in parkinsonian disorders. The second report links chronic binding of antagonist to N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors during brain development leading to neurodegeneration. The third report details the linkage between binding and activation of androgen receptor leading to reproductive dysfunction.
This paper reviews and compares five case studies on quantification and economic valuation of benefits in cost-benefit analyses (CBAs) of regulating phthalates, mercury, PFOA (perfluoro-octanic acid) and its salts, NMP (1 methyl-2-pyrroloidine) and formaldehyde. The case studies had all been carried out as part of the SACAME project, and the purpose of the present paper is to draw out cross-cutting findings from these studies.
