||Work in OECD on chemical safety: Approaches for human risk assessment
||Apr. 2000, Vol.38, No.2, p.109-119. Illus. 8 ref.
||By harmonizing national approaches to regulations related to chemicals, industry avoids being confronted with a large number of conflicting or duplicative requirements, governments are provided with a common basis for working with each other and non-tariff barriers to trade are reduced. This article presents the initiatives and activities of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) aimed at harmonizing approaches to chemical safety and hazard evaluation. These include the Mutual Acceptance of Data Scheme, Test Guidelines, Good Laboratory Practice and the Environmental Health and Safety Programme. Issues discussed include guidelines for animal experiments, testing of reproductive toxicity and neurotoxicity, classification and labelling.
