Past Conferences on the State of the Science on Development and Use of New Approach Methods (NAMs) for Chemical Safety Testing
In 2019, EPA committed to developing and implementing a work plan to reduce the use of animals in chemical testing and to prioritize ongoing efforts, and to direct existing resources, toward additional activities that will demonstrate measurable impacts in the reduction of animal testing while ensuring protection of human health and the environment. To report progress on these activities, EPA hosts regular conferences to provide updates and solicit input from interested stakeholders.
