With more than 1,400 participants from 61 nations, 67 exhibitors, and nearly 750 abstracts, 2018 EUROTOX Brussels held September 2-5, 2018 was an absolute success.


Thank you to all congress participants, EUROTOX members, scientific partners, exhibitors, sponsors, and the local organising committee chaired by Prof. Dominique Lison and Dr. Miranda Cornet,  for making this congress possible. 

"Toxicology Out of the Box” was the congress's theme, and the chance to deliver a really innovative, forward-looking and imaginative scientific programme which did not disappoint. In addition to offering attractive lectures and sessions with well-balanced inputs from academia, industry and regulators, the congress provided a wealth of opportunities for excursions, gastronomy and leisure activities.

Photos of the event will be posted on the congress website soon.

ERT Guidelines for Registration 2016 are now in force

Following the formal adoption by the Executive Committee during the Seville EUROTOX 2016 Congress in September 2016, the "European Registered Toxicologist (ERT) Guidelines for Registration 2016" are now in force. 

The text of the Guidelines, together with annexes, can be found on this website under the heading ERT. These Guidelines replace the 2012 version.

The changes compared to the former version are a more precise description of the procedures and the requirements for registration and re-registration. The addition of annex 1, which describes the foreseen learning outcomes of the core themes in toxicology, will be instrumental in determining the required level of theoretical knowledge for being a ERT. 

Annex 2 describes a procedure for the recognition of teaching activities (courses etc.) and provides guidance for course providers who wish to obtain recognition by EUROTOX for courses as part of the comprehensive theoretical training for registration of toxicologists or continuing professional development (CPD) for the purpose of maintaining ERT registration.
