+++ ONLINE CONFERENCE +++

We cordially invite you to join this 1-day online conference to get the latest information on the regulatory use of QSAR and Read-Across. Plenty of exciting presentations from representatives from EFSA, the regulatory authorities in Europe and the US, the plant protection industry as well as from the scientific fields are awaiting you! If your daily work includes the toxicological assessments of active substances in plant protection products, then this conference will equip you with the necessary know-how and tools. We are looking forward to meeting you! 

Highlights

QSAR – focus on genotoxicity – practical examples/experiences

  • EFSA on the use of in silico tools in the regulatory risk assessment –  examples
  • QSAR for the evaluation of genotoxicity of pesticide impurities and residues - an industry perspective
  • Recent experiences and challenges of providing QSAR services – view from consultancy (pesticides and general)
  • Current application of in silico tools for genotoxicity assessment

Read-across – focus on general toxicity

  • View from a regulator in the US and the research they are undertaking in the read-across area
  • EFSA on challenges and opportunities for read-across in food safety assessment
  • Grouping of substances and read-across approaches under REACH – a regulator’s perspective
  • Advancing the implementation of QSAR and read-across approaches in regulatory assessment of pesticide metabolite and impurities
