10 years following the EU ban on animal testing for cosmetics, several New Approach Methodologies (NAMs), both in vitro and in silico approaches, were proposed to evaluate the safety of chemical substances. This has gained support from European Commission and regulatory authorities such as ECHA and OECD to move towards an animal-free regulatory system, notably within REACH, Biocidal Product Regulation, Plant Protection Products Regulation etc.
During two-day training course, CEHTRA will emphasize on the paradigm shift to stress the importance of the new approaches for the assessment of substances and products. Experts from academics and industry will share their experiences on the on-going research and current use of NAMs in the context of REACH and NGRA for Cosmetics, covering both in vitro testing and in silico models.
All the participants will have the opportunity to share their views with the experts about the case studies covered during the workshop. This training event will provide the first key elements to integrate NAMs and NGRA solutions in evaluating chemicals safety and risk assessment.
Hands-on training format
The training will start with 0.5 day lectures and will be followed by 1.5 days of practical training (Hands on-training) where participants, divided in small groups will get the chance to work on case studies and see the critical steps of the methods with the experts. This is a perfect way to quickly approach a method, as well as data analysis and interpretation.
