Chemical safety and biosafety

The OECD assists countries in developing and implementing policies and instruments that make their systems for managing chemicals as efficient and robust as possible, while protecting human health and the environment. 


Wider international context

The OECD co-operates closely with various international organisations, through the Inter-organization Programme for the Sound Management of Chemicals (IOMC) towards the implementation of the Strategic Approach to International Chemicals Management (SAICM) which bring together governments from more than 150 countries and various stakeholders.

OECD Legal instruments

A number of OECD Council acts in force are dedicated to chemical safety and cover areas as diverse as chemical accidents, exchange of confidential data on chemicals or the Polluter-Pays Principle.


The OECD organises free webinars bringing world experts together to share best practices for regulatory authorities and the scientific community. Register for an upcoming webinar or watch the video recordings of the past webinars on:
