IOMC TOOLBOX Para la toma de decisiones en la gestión de productos químicos.

This management scheme helps to protect the health of workers and the public, as well as the environment and property, by reducing the likelihood that accidents will occur and limiting the consequences if one does happen.

The GHS addresses the classification of chemicals by types of hazard and proposes harmonized hazard communication elements, including labels and safety data sheets.

This scheme strengthens the capabilities of countries in assessing risks associated with industrial chemicals throughout their lifecycle and managing them safely.

A PRTR is a publicly accessible database or inventory of chemicals or pollutants released to air, water, and soil and transferred off-site for treatment. It brings together information about which chemicals are being released, where, how much, and by whom.

Controlling which pesticides can be used helps to avoid adverse effects on human health and the environment. This scheme covers the pesticide lifecycle, from production to registration, distribution, use, and disposal.

Improving occupational health and safety prevents or reduces the incidence of chemically induced illnesses and injuries at work and consequently enhances the protection of the general public and environment.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 webinar is part of a series organized by the different IOMC organizations and will provide participants with an overview of the updated online version of the Toolbox as well as a comprehensive presentation of the Industrial Chemicals Management scheme which provides guidance and support to strengthen the capabilities of countries in assessing risks associated with industrial chemicals throughout their lifecycle and managing them safely.

Background

The Inter-Organization Programme for the Sound Management of Chemicals (IOMC) toolbox is an internet-based problem solving tool that enables countries to identify the most relevant and efficient tools to address specific national problems in chemicals management.

The toolbox shares tools and information developed by the IOMC Participating Organizations. For any problem or chemicals management objective identified by a country, there are likely to be a number of options available. The Toolbox takes into account the resources available and guides the user towards the identification of simple and profitable solutions for the national problems of sustainable management of chemical products.

This webinar will provide an overview of the Environmental Risk Assessment Toolkit and redesigned IOMC Toolbox, followed by practical examples of risk assessment steps in three particular cases: (i) textile dye, (ii) pesticide and (iii) environmental quality standard setting.

Background

The Environment, Health and Safety Division of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) assists countries in developing and implementing policies and instruments to strengthen national chemicals management, while protecting human health and the environment.

In the framework of developing and harmonising methods for assessing risk to human health and the environment, including methodologies for hazard and exposure assessment, the Environmental Risk Assessment (ERA) Toolkit gives to interested countries and users access to practical tools on environmental risk assessment of chemicals. The Toolkit describes the general work flow of environmental risk assessment and provides examples as well.  Links to relevant tools developed by OECD and member countries are also provided.

The Best Available Techniques (BAT) concept has emerged as a key policy tool to prevent and control industrial emissions, thus ensuring a high level of environmental and human health protection. BAT and similar concepts constitute essential elements for setting emission limit values and other permit conditions for industrial emissions in many countries around the world.
