Advantages of being an ERT

Qualified toxicologists recognized as ERT are now working in a wide array of different fields (drug, nutritional, chemical and environmental safety, risk assessment and risk management, basic research, clinical and occupational toxicology, etc). To cope with the diverse needs in these different fields the Guidelines for Registration envisage training in the basic topics of toxicology, and in addition offer numerous options for specialisation.
