The Society of Toxicology (SOT), is proud to co-host the next triennial IUTOX International Congress of Toxicology (ICT) to be held July 15–18, 2019, at the Hawaii Convention Center in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA. The theme of this meeting, to ensure relevance and interest to the worldwide community of toxicologists and environmental health scientists, is “Toxicology Solutions for Global Public, Environmental, and Personal Health.”
Save the date: Netherlands Society of Toxicology Annual meeting 2017:
Membership in the NVT offers many benefits including:
On the 24th of March 2016, the sections on Reproductive Toxicology and Pharmaceutical Toxicology will organize the spring symposium entitled:
“Pediatric drug development: a field in maturation”
The invited speakers will share the latest insights on risk assessment of pediatric drugs from various perspectives. From nonclinical studies to clinical practice, improvement in dosage forms and regimens using modeling techniques, and reporting of adverse drug reactions in children. The symposium will be held at the Radboud University Medical Center in Nijmegen.
We hope the program meets your interest and to welcome many of you on the 24th of March 2016!
On behalf of the organizing committees,
Section of Reproduction toxicology: Liesbeth Heijink, Sjors Schulpen, Manon Beekhuijzen, André Wolterbeek
Section of Pharmaceutical toxicology: Leon van Aerts, Peter Theunissen, Suzanne Heemskerk, Lieke Peters, Cathaline den Besten, Jan Commandeur, Bob van de Water
In the context of the European Commission's Communication (Action 1) published in response to the European Citizens' Initiative "Stop Vivisection", the Joint Research Centre's European Union Reference Laboratory for Alternative to Animal Testing (EURL ECVAM) is conducting this public survey to solicit input from individuals and organisations i) to identify all types of knowledge sources that might be relevant to Replace, Reduce or Refine (the '3Rs') the use of animals for scientific purposes ii) to understand how such knowledge is currently disseminated and iii) to highlight what could be done to fill knowledge gaps and enhance knowledge sharing.
The results of this survey will be fed into a comprehensive study currently being undertaken by the Commission to map data, information and knowledge resources available in different scientific fields and industry sectors that can be exploited in some way to replace animal studies with alternative approaches not involving animals, to adapt studies to reduce the number of animals needed, or to refine studies so as to minimise pain, suffering and distress of the animal, and to improve its welfare. Moreover, the study aims to explore how sharing of knowhow and resources could be enhanced to accelerate overall progress in the 3Rs in every domain where animals are used for a scientific purpose, whether it be for basic biological research, toxicological testing, or for training and education. The outcome of the study will be made public by the end of 2016.
Occupational exposure limits of dangerous substances have yet been solely set for the inhalation of workroom air. Where studies have shown that dermal exposure could cause systemic effects a skin notation is added as an alert to the OEL of the chemical.
With the introduction of the EU REACH-directives separate exposure limits were derived for dermal exposure such as the DNELdermal, local or the DNELdermal, systemic. Has this new attention led to new tools to assess dermal exposure in the workplace? That is the subject of this mini-symposium. All presentations will be in English.

Why should I register as a recognized toxicologist?
Can I have the title recognized toxicologist for official use? Also abroad?
Do I always need an instructor for my registration?
How does the registration committee judge a non POT-course on the same criteria as POT course?
Is my supervisor my trainer?
When do I get answers to my request for (re) registration or to be listed as a toxicologist in training?
What can I do if the registration committee (s) disapproves my exemptions?
Can I apply for exemptions of both compulsory modules and elective modules?
Unfortunately the forms are currently only available in Dutch
Recognition and registration generally follow on the successful completion of the personalised training programme. Requirements for registration and for renewal of registration are formulated in the Rules and Requirements of the Concilium Toxicologicum. The Registration Committee Toxicology (RT) judges all requests for registration and for renewal of registration. An Application form for registration may be downloaded using this link. Please also consult the Explanation on Registration as Toxicologist by the RT. For more background information on registration and the registration procedure see also: Bylaws of the NVT and FAQs on registration and renewal of registration. Experienced toxicologists, who wish to be registered directly, are advised to contact the RT on the subject in advance of application.
