To bring together key stakeholders from academia, industry, regulatory authorities and control laboratories involved in animal testing and to discuss the best approach(es) for alternatives and find consensus where necessary. The following subjects will be discussed during the workshop:
• Emerging scientific tools and methodologies as alternatives to animal experimentation;
• Regulations governing data requirements for animal testing in nutrition and food safety.
The workshop aims to discuss a draft guidance manuscript in which an overview of current regulations are provided, as well as tools and methodologies considered as potential alternatives to animal testing. A peer-reviewed publication covering the discussions will be produced soon after the workshop.
