India joins OECD system for mutual data acceptance on chemical assessments

India has joined South Africa and Singapore to become the third emerging economy to join the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development's system for the Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD) in the Assessment of Chemicals, OECD announced April 6. "The OECD Mutual Acceptance of Data system is a multilateral agreement which saves governments and chemical producers around €150 million ($213 million) every year by allowing the results of a variety of non-clinical safety tests done on chemicals and chemical products, such as industrial chemicals and pesticides, to be shared across OECD and other countries that adhere to the system. India's engagement in OECD's work on chemical safety and its membership in our MAD system is indicative of the mutual benefit of the ever-closer relationship between OECD and major emerging economies," OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria says in a statement. Provisional adherents to the system include Argentina, Brazil, Malaysia and Thailand.
