IOMC toolbox for decision-making in chemicals management

The IOMC Toolbox is an internet-based tool that enables countries to identify the most relevant and efficient tools to address specific national problems in chemicals management. Developed by the IOMC, this proof-of-concept toolbox focuses on a national management scheme for pesticides, an occupational health and safety system as well as a chemical accidents prevention, preparedness and response system for major hazards. The toolbox utilizes tools and information developed by the IOMC Participating Organizations. Launched at the 3rd session of the International Conference on Chemicals Management, the proof-of-concept version will undergo pilot-testing by end-users and will be further developed.
