OECD publish report on alternative testing strategies in risk assessment of nanomaterials

Date: 03/2/2017

The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has published a new report which describes the state of the science in alternative testing strategies in risk assessment of manufactured nanomaterials.

The report, which is being published under the responsibility of the Joint Meeting of the Chemicals Committee and the Working Party on Chemicals, Pesticides and Biotechnology,  includes considerations on how alternative testing strategies could be used in a risk analysis context to inform human health, ecosystem health, and exposure data needs for manufactured nanomaterials in the near term and longer term, as well as identifying research needs to support the development of these strategies in the near future.
