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.


New collaboration between SETAC Europe and EUROTOX

SETAC Europe welcomes EUROTOX members to the 27th Annual Meeting, which will be held in Brussels, Belgium, from 7–11 May 2017.

Both societies have initiated a new collaboration with the aim of "Bridging the gap between toxicology and ecotoxicology".

The call for abstracts is currently underway. Consider submitting yours before the November 23 deadline.
