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.


Application for fellowships for ERT courses in 2017


EUROTOX is pleased to once again offer the opportunity to apply for fellowships to attend comprehensive training courses in toxicology (ERT courses), and for cross-border exchange of teachers on such courses.

Full details regarding eligibility and application process can be found here (for course attendees) and here (for teachers) 

Note New Deadlines for applications:

  • 30 November 2016 for courses between 1 January and 30 June 2017
  • 31 May 2017 for courses between 1 July and 31 December 2017
