Full coverage (a dedicated course)
|Details on the topic or technology covered:||
current non-animal test methods for regulatory C&L, and non-regulatory industrial screening, for eye, skin, mucosal irritations, allergic contact dermatitis, pigmentation, wound healing, skin-based genetox, percutaneous permeation
Directive 2010/63/EU or equivalent, CLP Regulation (EC) No 1272/2008, REACH Regulation (EC) No 1907/2006 or equivalent, Cosmetics Regulation (EC) No 1223/2009 or equivalent, Medical Devices Regulation (EU) 2017/745, Test guidelines (OECD, ISO, etc.)
provides clear guidance on the applications and limitations of each of the non-animal test methods; provides mechanistic understanding for regulatory staff to aid data interpretation in regulatory submissions; provides mechanistic and practical understanding for industry to select the most relevant and appropriate test methods for specific products/chemicals/formulations; provides a clear understanding of sources of error and variations in resultant data, and provides relative comparisons to animal-based test methods.
