In 2022, the Chemicals Programme of the OECD – the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development – celebrates its 50th anniversary. The aim of the programme has been to improve chemical safety worldwide.

In this episode, we’ll speak with Bob Diderich, Head of the Environment, Health and Safety Division of the OECD. We first have a look back and reflect on some of the successes of the organisation before going into more details on what still needs to be done to further harmonise chemicals assessment across the world. But we also discuss the challenge of animal testing that is common to many OECD countries and how the road towards wider acceptance of alternative methods might look.
