21 January | QuoData signed framework agreement with the OECD
Based on the internationally acknowledged expertise of QuoData in the area of strategic quality assurance, especially in optimization and validation of methods, QuoData was chosen by the OECD (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development) to assist with the OECD Test Guidelines.
The OECD Test Guidelines are a collection of the most significant internationally accepted test methods, which are used by government, industry and independent laboratories to determine the security of chemicals and chemical compounds.
The framework agreement signed by OECD and QuoData contains analytic, statistic and organizational tasks on defined hazard endpoints like eye and skin irritation/corrosion, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicity testing and biocide efficacy testing.
If required QuoData will supply SOPs for hazardous material tests, support the validation of special test methods, perform biostatistical analyses and contribute to the development of new OECD Test Guidelines.
