The EEB in cooperation with the OECD’s Chemicals and Biotechnology Committee (CBC) and the Environment Policy Committee (EPOC) is organising a capacity building session for environmental Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) to better understand the work the OECD does on chemicals and how environmental CSOs can engage and collaborate for shaping better environmental policies.


Through the interventions from OECD representatives , EEB staff and other CSOs this session will allow you to better understand how the CBC is organised and how it collaborates with EPOC. CSOs will have the opportunity to better know how different Working Parties, Working Groups and Experts meetings function and which opportunities they have to contribute to the work led by the OECD.
