During 2017, ICCVAM coordinated the development of a strategic roadmap for incorporating new approaches into safety testing of chemicals and medical products in the United States.
ICCVAM held two public forum meetings in 2016 and 2017. These meetings provided an opportunity for public interaction with representatives from ICCVAM member agencies.
ICCVAM’s annual Communities of Practice webinars provide opportunities for detailed consideration of current topics relevant to alternative test method development.
ICCVAM agencies presented workshops and webinars during 2016 and 2017 to foster collaboration and provide information about alternative testing methods.
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 Test Guidelines Programme of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). OECD test guidelines are used by government, industry, and independent laboratories in OECD member countries to assess chemical safety.
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 2016 and September 2017.
