• The present publication is part of the series of OECD SIDS documents published by UNEP Chemicals (up to 2007) in response to its mandate to facilitate the access to information needed for health and environmental risk assessment of chemicals. The documents contain the information gathered and an Initial Assessment performed under the framework of the OECD HPV Chemicals Programme. For OECD SIDS documents published since 2007, please see the OECD Existing Chemicals Database or search on eChemPortal.
  • The information is provided as an indication of the current state of knowledge of these chemicals based on the Screening Information Data Set (SIDS), but does not presume to be comprehensive. The co-operating organizations in IPCS (UNEP, ILO, WHO) and OECD disclaim all liability for direct or consequential damages from the use of the SIDS Initial assessment data.
