This NanoHarmony (project in which NIA is a partner) workshop will follow the journey of a Guidance Document (GD) or Test Guideline (TG) through the OECD process from the standard project submission form (SPSF), through to its adoption and use. At each stage of the process the ‘audience’ changes and therefore so does the information requirements needed to be able to address their ‘needs’.

The aim of the workshop is to highlight the changes in emphasis and information required at each of the TG/GD process steps and to allow delegates to share their experiences at different stages of the TG/GD process. The outcome of the workshop will be a greater shared understanding of how future OECD TG/GD can more efficiently navigate the acceptance process and to help build guidance for future proposers based on best practice.

The workshop is aimed at all stakeholders interested n the TG/GD process including:

  • Scientists- who may be interested in having their innovation taken forward into a test guideline
  • OECD Expert- who can provide their experiences of managing the OECD TG/GD process
  • Regulators- who administer the key regulatory frameworks that industry needs to comply with
  • Policymakers- who set the overall chemicals legislative framework either nationally or globally through the EU or OECD
  • Industry- who are looking for test guidelines to allow them to meet their regulatory obligations

The interaction between different stakeholders will allow NanoHarmony to learn from previous experiences with the TG/GD process and to establish best practice from learned experiences and to summarise this into good practice guidelines.
