Pre-conference training course
This course offers a practical introduction to regulatory safety and risk assessment. It is intended for those with either little or no knowledge of the risk assessment process.
The course offers a comprehensive coverage of the basics of risk assessment, including what it achieves and the requirements under various country-specific regulations.
Furthermore, case studies and the opportunity to put the learning into practice will be a key feature of this course.
The learning outcomes are to allow those attending to understand the key data endpoints that make up risk assessment, covering toxicity, chemistry and exposure.
- Background and Introduction
- Hazard identification and assessment
- Human health data gathering
- How to find and evaluate data for risk assessment purposes
- The use of chemistry knowledge (i.e. structure and physicochemical properties)
- Identification of critical studies for use in the derivation of benchmark “safe dose”
- Worked (and group) examples throughout this section
- Exposure assessment
- The approach which should be taken in exposure assessment and the type of models which can be used (why and how)
- The importance of chemistry in the assessment of likely exposure routes
- Worked (and group) examples
