Description This database can help OECD member countries and the chemical industry select chemicals for sponsorship, track the status of chemical and chemical categories, obtain published OECD assessments, find a SIDS contact point, or view a variety of useful reports and lists on chemicals within the OECD Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme. This database tracks all chemicals in the OECD cooperative Chemicals Assessment Programme. High production volume (HPV) chemicals are tracked from the time that they are identified as an HPV to OECD until a full SIDS assessment has been completed. Other chemicals (such as targeted assessments) are tracked from either the time they are identified to OECD or when they are submitted for discussion at a Cooperative Chemicals Assessment Meeting (CoCAM) through completion. The database contains any annotations on each chemical provided to the Secretariat by member countries.
