The OECD webinars on Testing and Assessment Methodologies focus on selected ongoing projects that will result in the short to medium term in new methodologies to test and assess chemicals. These free webinars are open to potential end users among regulators and contract research organisations who want to get familiar with new standards and approaches. Video recordings of our webinars are made available online afterwards.
MISSED OUR wEBINAR ON THE ADVERSE OUTCOME PATHWAY (AOP) FRAMEWORK? WATCH THE VIDEO RECORDING
|On 30 April 2019, the OECD organised a webinar on the Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) framework. The AOP framework is a collaborative tool that applies an innovative approach for collecting mechanistic knowledge from various sources that can eventually support chemical safety assessment.

Missed our wEBINAR ON Defined Approaches for Skin Sensitisation? watch the video recording
On 16 January 2019, Patience Browne of the Environment Directorate presented an overview of an on-going project led by the European Commission Joint Research Centre/the United States/ Health Canada.
A Defined Approach is a combination of non-animal methods with a fixed data interpretation procedure. Defined Approaches reduce limitations of single alternative methods and are increasingly needed to generate chemical safety data that satisfy the current regulatory requirements in OECD member countries without use of animals.
