This publication is a compendium of risk assessment/management resources to build the capacity of APEC member economies, particularly developing economies, and those with limited regulatory oversight regimes, by building awareness and proficiency among officials to implement best practices for chemical risk management. The compendium supports two of the three ‘shared goals’ from the Chemical Dialogue’s Strategic Framework: (1) to facilitate trade by expanding and supporting cooperation and mutual recognition among chemical regulators in the region, and (2) to enable effective cooperation between industry and governments to improve chemical product stewardship and safe use.
