Integrated Approaches to Toxicity Testing Lead to New Challenges for Setting Regulatory Acceptance of Methods
In the last of the joint ChemicalWatch/PETA International Science Consortium (PISC) webinars focused on in vitro testing and REACH regulations. Karin Kilian, who is responsible for data requirements under REACH and test method regulation in the chemicals unit of the DG Environment, said that a "re-think" of the process of regulatory acceptance of chemical tests was in order and that "new processes are needed as a result of the paradigm shift in chemical testing according to an article written in Chemical Watch (linked below). Key questions that need to be addressed include:
How can information requirements be set for integrated testing approaches?
How can regulatory authorities assess submissions, based on such approaches, and what resources and expertise are needed?
