TR 137 – Developing the scientific basis for Exposure Based Adaptations (EBA)

In a Nutshell

A task force set up by the Centre for chemical safety assessment (ECETOC) has recommended improvements to the EU’s legislation on testing for chemicals manufactured or imported into the EU where there is minimal or no human or environmental exposure. Its recommendations, published in a Technical Report, aim to ensure efficient and science-based European chemical regulation, while also preventing unnecessary animal testing.
