Chemicals regulation – update of EU rules for test methods

(Source European Commission)

Deadline: 07 April 2022
The EU’s REACH regulation places controls on chemicals that may be potentially hazardous for humans, animals or the environment.

One of its accompanying acts – Regulation 440/2008 – lists the approved methods for testing chemicals.

This initiative will add a number of new/updated methods to that list, which have the potential to reduce the amount of animal testing using chemicals.
