Information on alternative methods and testing strategies that could be used to meet REACH requirements


Four EURL ECVAM scientists provide stakeholders and the general public an opportunity to get updated information on alternative methods and testing strategies that could be used to meet REACH information requirements on aspects of toxicological hazard of registered chemicals. This happens via a free webinar series (six seminars) running from October, 22, 2014 to April 2015.

The seminars, co-organised by Chemical Watch (CW) and the PETA International Science Consortium, Ltd, may be of interest to industry toxicologists, those registering chemicals for the first time, companies who would like to know more about validated non-animal tests that are available and how companies are using them and REACH consultants.

More general information on the PETA International Science Consortium, Ltd, web site
