Countries unite to reduce animal use in product toxicity testing worldwide
Date:4/27/2009

nstitute of Health and Consumer Protection for the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, where the European Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods, ICCVAM's European counterpart, is located. Anklam has signed the agreement as representative on behalf of the EU. Her colleague Joachim Kreysa, Ph.D., the recently appointed head of ECVAM, further remarked, "I am enthusiastic about the agreement. Our collaboration will help to identify and embrace scientifically sound and robust new testing approaches, ensuring that safety assessments are never compromised, while at the same time reduce the need for animal testing."

"Although we've had informal collaborations over the years, this more formal agreement will allow us to work more efficiently and effectively," said Hajime Kojima, Ph.D., director of the Japanese Centre for the Validation of Alternative Methods.

David Blakey, D.Phil., director of the Environmental Health Science and Research Bureau within Health Canada, added that the effort is a major step forward. "Increased coordination, collaboration and communication will clearly enhance the global progress in this important area."
