The last in a series of three webinars with the PETA International Science Consortium
The PETA International Science Consortium, an organisation that promotes reliable and relevant regulatory testing approaches that project human health and the environment while eliminating the use of animals, and Chemical Risk Manager, have teamed up again to present a free webinar series focusing on non-animal methods and testing strategies that can be used to meet REACH requirements. This series updates the popular 2014-2015 webinar series and will reflect the significant progress in the use and acceptance of non-animal methods that has occurred in recent years.
This webinar took place on 15 February and speakers Dr Els Adriaens and Dr KimNorman discussed the drivers of in vivo classification for serious eye damage and eye irritation in order to specify the requirements for achieving full replacement of the regulatory animal test. They then described the available in vitro methods and the ways in which they can be used alone or in combination in various testing strategies, such as top-down or bottom-up approaches.

Dr Kim Norman, Senior Scientist, Product Stewardship, Burt's Bees
