Cat-App Project Final Results Presentation in Brussels

Cat-App Project: New Technologies to Underpin Category Approaches and Read-across in Regulatory Programmes, initiated and funded by Concawe, tackles this specific challenge by investigating practical strategies for grouping and read across approaches with the aim of providing a cost-effective integrative approach to solving the similarity challenges of UVCBs. The concept is to develop a framework based on chemical-biological read-across, a novel direction in regulatory decision making.  The presentation of the final results of the Cat-App project is taking place Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 09:00 to 17:00 at the at the SQUARE Congress Center, Mont des Arts/Kunstberg 1000 Brussels, Belgium. The event is free of charge though registration is necessary. Following the presentations there will be a cocktail reception starting at 17:00 and finishing at 18:30.

Help us disseminate the results of this project by sharing the invitation with colleagues in your organisation who may be interested in attending.

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.
