With an option for digital attendance.
Leiden University Gorlaeus Lecture Hall C1, Address: Einsteinweg 57, Leiden[1]

One substance – Multiple assessments
Titanium Dioxide considered from a food and pharma perspective

In this spring meeting of the NVT, the section Pharmaceutical Toxicology and the section Risk Assessment will give an overview of the challenges from various legal frameworks with regard to the principle of ‘one substance - one assessment’. In support of the EU chemicals strategy for sustainability, the EU Commission is moving towards ‘one substance – one assessment’ principle. But how does this work across different regulatory frameworks? What are the differences in risk assessments and how might end-use of products be impacted? Should one regulate based on hazard or based on risk? Based on an example substance, titanium dioxide, regulatory and risk assessment considerations regarding ‘one substance – one assessment’ will be highlighted.
During the symposium there will be sufficient time to discuss and ask questions to the speakers and other attendees. We hope it will be an inspiring, thought-provoking, and informative meeting.
