Description: A year after the landmark European Parliament Resolution calling for an “Action Plan to accelerate a transition to innovation without the use of animals in research, regulatory testing and education”, more needs to be done to make this near unanimous call a reality. A golden opportunity to open the door to the use of innovative, non-animal approaches for chemical assessment and management is possible under the ongoing revision of the REACH regulation (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) as part of the Chemicals Strategy for Sustainability. But to achieve this, meaningful change needs to happen and there has been much discussion on how this could be accomplished.
Join us for a webinar to learn more about Humane Society International’s practical, solution-based proposals on how to amend REACH in a way that human and environmental protection is fully achieved, whilst expediting the way to a full transition to non-animal methods for chemical safety testing.
