About IOMC Toolbox
The IOMC Internet-based Toolbox for Decision Making in Chemicals Management (IOMC Toolbox) is aimed at countries who wish to address specific national issues regarding chemicals management.
The IOMC Toolbox is a problem solving tool that enables countries to identify the most appropriate and efficient national actions to address specific national problems related to chemicals management.
The toolbox identifies the available IOMC resources that will help the country address the identified national problem(s) or objectives. Special focus is given to identifying simple cost effective solutions to national chemicals management issues.
Public Health Management of Chemicals and WHO Chemicals Road Map
Tools and information organized by topics of major relevance are provided for public health, environmental health, and medical aspects of assessing and managing chemical risks and impacts of chemicals. Tools are also organized by action areas of the Chemicals Road Map.

FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit
The FAO Pesticide Registration Toolkit is a decision-support system for pesticide registrars in developing countries. It will assist registrars in the evaluation and authorization of pesticides. The Toolkit can serve as a web-based registration handbook intended for day-to-day use. It also links to pesticide-specific information sources such as registrations in other countries, scientific reviews, hazard classifications, labels, MRLs, and pesticide properties.
OECD Environmental Risk Assessment Toolkit
This toolkit gives access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment of chemicals. It describes the general work flow of environmental risk assessment and provides examples of risk assessment. This toolkit also provides links to relevant tools developed by OECD and member countries that can be used in each step. The examples provide a roadmap of the process, showing the steps involved in each case and the tools which were used.
UNIDO Chemical Leasing Toolkit
The Chemical Leasing Toolkit provides guidelines, materials, best practice case studies, and lessons learned from 10 years of work at UNIDO’s Global Chemical Leasing Programme. The Toolkit enables users to systematically kick-start the implementation of Chemical Leasing at the company level. It also supports policymakers in understanding how best to approach Chemical Leasing in the policy arena.
UNIDO Innovative Approaches for the Sound Management of Chemicals and Chemical Waste Toolkit
The Toolkit enables manufacturers and industrial users of chemicals, and consultants to identify chemicals management hotspots and to implement innovations that provide customers value and increase revenue, while providing environmental benefits and protecting the health of workers and society. The Toolkit consists of a company guide that provides a methodological approach in the form of six phases, supplemented by technical resources, sector guidelines, and case studies.
UNIDO Green Chemistry Toolkit
The toolkit provides materials to deepen the understanding of Green Chemistry, including origins, technologies and how it drives environmental and economic goals for societal benefits. The toolkit aims to transform the trainees into Green Chemistry facilitators who will be able to disseminate Green Chemistry to their networks by using practical and tangible examples that encourage the change. It was developed under the Global Green Chemistry Initiative – a project led by UNIDO in partnership with the Center for Green Chemistry and Green Engineering at Yale University.
WHO Human Health Risk Assessment Toolkit: Chemical Hazards - in maintenance
The eToolkit is an interactive web-application based on the WHO Human Health Risk Assessment Toolkit: Chemical Hazards. Users are provided with web-based templates of roadmaps for conducting human health risk assessments. While being led through a step-by-step risk assessment process, users are provided with background information and are able to document the information they have gathered and the conclusions they have drawn in electronic templates. The toolkit is temporarily in maintenance.
