The OECD chemicals safety program

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) provides a forum where governments can work together to seek solutions to common problems in order to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world. Part of what OECD does is set international standards on topics ranging from agriculture and tax to the safety of chemicals.

The OECD program on chemicals safety translates the UN guidelines into practical tools for manufacturers of chemicals. Some of the tools are about testing chemicals, good laboratory practices (GLP), hazard and risk assessments, quantitative structure-activity relationships project (QSARs), etc.
