The aim of this Workshop was to discuss some of the issues raised by the previous non -animal hazard assessment methodology workshop in May 2018. The May workshop had concentrated particularly on approaches to the combination of in vitro assays for hazard assessment for the purpose of the identification of a NESIL as a basis for risk assessment.

Participants were encouraged to think ‘outside the box’ and therefore a wide ranging enthusiastic discussion ensued. The topics covered included Objectives; Use of existing data; Non-animal test framework; Approaches to data analysis; and Next steps for IDEA.
