2014 Spring Webinar

MASOT Webinar: REACH, Alternative Methods, and Tox21: Today and Tomorrow
Date and Time

Event Registration and Participation

Date and time: Wednesday, May 14, 2014 10:00 am, Eastern Daylight Time (New York, GMT-04:00)

Description: REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) is a regulation of the European Union (EU) that entered into force on 1 June 2007 to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks that can be posed by chemicals. Due to the testing requirements of REACH, the legislation also promotes alternative methods for the hazard assessment of substances in order to reduce the number of tests on animals. Therefore, three experts will present an overview and current status of REACH and other similar global programs, along with alternative in vitro testing methods to meet the requirements of REACH and possible computational toxicology methods (Tox21) that could impact REACH.

These presentations should be relevant to a wide range of areas within toxicology including: pharmaceutical, occupational health and safety, consumer product, chemical, and academic scientists. It will cover toxicology testing requirements of REACH and in vitro and possible in silico alternatives.
