Integrating new advances in exposure science and toxicity testing: next steps
Integration of developments in exposure science and toxicity testing is essential for advancing knowledge-based decision making about the safety of chemicals.
The JRC's Institute for Health and Consumer Protection (IHCP) and the International Council of Chemical Associations’ Long-Range Research Initiative (ICCA-LRI) are organising a workshop that will consider application of these integrated approaches to the design, evaluation, and health risk management of chemicals. Also, this workshop will provide a venue to evaluate how communication between scientists and decision makers, and with stakeholders, including the public, can be improved to yield better chemical management policies.
