Chemical safety and biosafety

National co-ordinators of the Test Guidelines programme

 

The development of Test Guidelines (TGs) is overseen by the Working Group of National Co-ordinators of the TGs programme (WNT) who makes decisions on TGs (approve and update of TGs) and decide on project proposals to include in the work plan. The WNT meets annually, usually in April. National co-ordinators represent regulatory authorities in OECD Member countries and countries adhering to MAD; and nominate experts and scientists from research and regulatory areas to work together on developing tools and guidance. In addition, expertise and input is gathered from the Business and Industry Advisory Committee (BIAC), Environmental non-governmental organisations , and the International Council on Animal Protection (ICAPO). Broad participation in work on TGs development helps to ensure sound science and international regulatory acceptance of test methods.
