The REACH Regulation requires new information on hazardous properties to be generated avoiding unnecessary animal testing where possible. The purpose of this practical guide is to inform you about your obligations to avoid unnecessary testing on vertebrate animals, yet still ensure that you have sufficient information on the properties of your substances for classification and risk assessment. To this end, it explains the increasing opportunities for using alternatives to animal testing and how to report these correctly. This practical guide also provides recommendations based on ECHA’s experience so far with the registration and dossier evaluation processes.
