OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals

The OECD Guidelines for the Testing of Chemicals are a unique tool for assessing the potential effects of chemicals on human health and the environment. They are split into five sections: Section 1: Physical-Chemical properties; Section 2: Effects on Biotic Systems; Section 3:Environmental fate and behaviour; Section 4: Health Effects and Section 5: Other Test Guidelines. Accepted internationally as standard methods for safety testing, the Guidelines are used by professionals in industry, academia and government involved in the testing and assessment of chemicals (industrial chemicals, pesticides, personal care products, etc.). These Guidelines are continuously expanded and updated to ensure they reflect the state-of-the-art science and techniques to meet member countries regulatory needs. The Guidelines are elaborated with the assistance of experts from regulatory agencies, academia, industry, environmental and animal welfare organisations. OECD Test Guidelines are covered by the OECD Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD) system. Under this system, laboratory test results related to the safety of chemicals that are generated in accordance with OECD Test Guidelines and OECD Principles of Good Laboratory Practices are accepted in all OECD countries and adherent countries for the purpose of safety assessment and other uses relating to the protection of human health and the environment.
