Updated overview of the validation and/or international acceptance status of test methods worked upon within ICATM
The European Reference Laboratory for Alternatives to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) supports the post-validation regulatory acceptance process at both the European Union and international levels such as the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). International cooperation in developing alternative test methods for cosmetics takes place under ICATM – the Framework for International Cooperation on Alternative Test Methods.
Under the auspices of the International Cooperation of Cosmetics Regulators (ICCR), the European Commission Joint Research Centre (JRC) compiles periodically an overview of the validation and/or international acceptance status of test methods worked upon within ICATM.
The overview, last updated in February 2013, is now available on this web site.
