ICCVAM was created to “establish, wherever feasible, guidelines, recommendations, and regulations that promote the regulatory acceptance of new or revised scientifically valid safety testing methods that protect human and animal health and the environment while reducing, refining, and replacing animal tests and ensuring human safety and product effectiveness.”
The ICCVAM Authorization Act directs ICCVAM to carry out specific duties relevant to evaluation and promotion of new test methods. This page lists those duties and how key activities in 2014 and 2015 align with those duties.
NICEATM is an office within the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences' Division of the National Toxicology Program. NICEATM provides technical and scientific support for ICCVAM and ICCVAM working group activities, peer review panels, expert panels, workshops, and validation efforts.
The Scientific Advisory Committee on Alternative Toxicological Methods (SACATM) advises the Director of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NICEATM, and ICCVAM about NICEATM and ICCVAM activities.
