OECD Guidelines for the testing of chemicals and related documents
Owner/Developer: The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD)
The OECD Guidelines for the testing of chemicals are a collection of the most relevant internationally agreed testing methods used by governments, industry and independent laboratories to assess the safety of chemical products. They are primarily used in regulatory safety testing and subsequent chemical notification and registration. The set of Test Guidelines is updated on a regular basis to keep pace with progress in science and countries’ regulatory needs. OECD-wide networks of national coordinators and national experts provide input from scientists in government, academia, and industry. OECD Test Guidelines should not be confused with data requirements, which are the prerogative of national authorities.
