ICCVAM held two public forum meetings in 2014 and 2015. These meetings provided an opportunity for public interaction with representatives from the 15 ICCVAM member agencies.
ICCVAM initiated a series of “Communities of Practice” webinars in 2015 to provide opportunities for detailed consideration of a current topic relevant to alternative test method development.
The International Cooperation on Alternative Test Methods (ICATM) was established in 2009 to promote consistent and enhanced voluntary international cooperation, collaboration, and communication among national validation organizations.
ICCVAM member agencies participate in the development and national review of guidelines for the testing of chemicals issued by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). OECD test guidelines can be used by government, industry, and independent laboratories in OECD member countries to determine the safety of chemical preparations.
The Scientific Advisory Committee on Alternative Toxicological Methods (SACATM) is a federally chartered advisory group that advises NICEATM, ICCVAM, and the NIEHS director about ICCVAM activities. SACATM held public meetings in September 2014 and September 2015.
NICEATM and ICCVAM scientists participated in a number of workshops, conferences, and meetings in 2014 and 2015. This section includes brief descriptions of selected events.
