Read-across is an important scientific method for providing reliable information on the
properties of substances, whilst minimising the use of animals. It is widely used in a
variety of legislations, and this session seeks to develop overarching approaches to improved
read-across in general, by focusing on the specific example of its use in REACH.
The session starts by describing the nature of read-across in REACH, the extent of the
use of read-across in REACH registration dossiers, and the use of the recently developed
read-across assessment framework to evaluate read-across in a consistent way. Scientific
challenges associated with the use of read-across for multi-constituent substances, and
substances of Unknown or Variable composition, Complex reaction products or Biological
materials (UVCBs) are mapped out. Novel and alternative methods can support the use of
read-across, and novel frameworks for considering how this information can be applied to
read-across will be discussed. The challenges of dealing with read-across for a variety of
industrial chemicals will be discussed, making reference to uncertainty in the regulatory
landscape and other challenges for successful read-across. The session aims to summarise
key concepts for sucessful application of read-across in a variety of regulatory settings.
