Building Trust in the Scientific Evidence Base Supporting Chemical Risk Assessment and the Role of the AOP Framework
The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is hosting the webinar Building trust in the scientific evidence base supporting chemical risk assessment and the role of the Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) framework.
The session will discuss evidence needs in chemicals policy and regulation by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC). It will be an opportunity to hear the main findings of the report and a set of actionable recommendations, including how knowledge management systems can be designed in a user-centric fashion to address current challenges, with the AOP framework being a prominent example.
Speakers and presentations:
- Introduction: Magda Sachana from the OECD Environment Directorate
- Trust and Transparency Plus in chemicals regulation: Annamaria Carusi from Interchange Research
- Building trust through improved tools and practice in the life cycle of mechanistic data: Antonio Franco from the EC Joint Research Centre
