Compendium of Canada's engagement in international environmental agreements and instruments. Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) decisions related to the Chemicals Programme.: En4-381/1-21-2020E-PDF
"The OECD Chemicals Programme has been around since 1971. Decisions made within this organization are important to Canada because they contribute to strengthening the international sound management of chemicals. They improve efficiency and cost-savings through leveraging policy, scientific and technical expertise of other nations in areas of mutual interest. The decisions taken within the OECD are legally binding. Canada is an active participant within the programme where it collaborates with other countries on technical and policy issues related to chemicals management (e.g. harmonized approaches to hazard and risk assessment; exposure modelling, test guidelines and emerging scientific issues such as nanotechnology and biotechnology). One of the core aspects is the mutual acceptance of data. By aligning technical and regulatory approaches and sharing the cost of scientific research, the OECD's Chemicals Program enhances the effectiveness and efficiency of chemicals management in Canada and abroad"--Plain language summary.
