At a glance

An important objective of EPAA is to improve the implementation of 3Rs in European regulatory testing and decision making. It therefore aims to identify optimised approaches on testing and risk assessment strategies in existing and upcoming legislation and their implementation so as to avoid double and redundant, as well as unnecessary testing. In this respect, EPAA strives to share experience and evaluate consistency across sectors, analyse hot spots and to identify policy drivers for testing.


Platform on 3Rs on Regulation is co-chaired by Dr Tim Rowan for the industry partners and Renate Weissenhorn (DG ENTR) for the Commission partners
