Chemical testing in the 21st century: a primer
What is chemical testing in the 21st century? Why are new approaches needed for evaluating chemical hazard and risk? How is the Environmental Protection Agency integrating these new approaches into its work to protect human health and the environment from harmful chemicals? What are the potential public health and policy implications of these new approaches? And, what is the role for the public interest community?
There are many important questions to be asked as new approaches are developed to evaluate the hazards and risks of chemicals. EDF has created this online primer as an introduction to these new approaches, the opportunities and challenges they present, and the need for greater public engagement in their development and use.
