The requirements for becoming ERT are summarised as follows: an academic degree in a science linked to toxicology, further theoretical training, practical training and expertise in toxicology (overall at least 5 years), current active professional participation in the field of Toxicology. They are described in the Guidelines for Registration, Sections A, B, and C.
Candidates for registration will have demonstrated a high standard of critical ability and communication skills, for example by authorship of reports, assessments, and/or published papers.
Once registered, on a 5-yearly basis toxicologists must re-affirm their registration credentials and document their continued professional awareness and education as well as their current activity in the subject.
