Introduction to Regulatory Toxicology and Toxicity Testing
This webinar class will take an introductory look at regulatory toxicology and the type of toxicity testing which is required. It is a very good follow on course to the Toxicology for Non-Toxicologists training webinar class.
It is designed in such a way that the information will be useful for a wide variety of industries/regulations e.g. REACH Regulation, Biocides (BPR), Cosmetics, etc. It will also be useful for those of you involved with writing safety data sheets (SDS) and classification and labelling (CLP/GHS).
This training webinar will cover aspects such as data waiving, exposure-based waiving, adaptation, the weight of evidence and read across (and how these can be used with examples). We will also look at sources of data and its reliability (Klimisch ratings) and, whether or not it should be used.
During this 1.5-hour session, we will also look at the toxicological endpoints and the current testing methods available (human data, QSAR, physicochemical properties, in vitro and in vivo data) and the regulatory approach to their evaluation/interpretation & use.
Unfortunately, as this is only a 1.5-hour webinar class, it will not give you a university degree in toxicology/regulatory toxicology, but it will help you understand the approach that is taken to testing, its interpretation and the rationale behind it!
- Introduction to regulatory toxicology
- Data waiving, adaptation, weight of evidence
- Non testing methods – In silico, QSAR, read-across, available physicochemical test data
- Testing methods – human data, in vitro, ex vivo, in chemico and in vivo
- Current assessment methods for each of the toxicological endpoints and the regulatory approach to their interpretation and use
- Examples will be used throughout the session to illustrate the theory.
