Agenda Available for ICCVAM Public Forum

Contributor: Catherine Sprankle, NICEATM

An agenda is available for the May 25 ICCVAM public forum. Representatives from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, the Department of Defense, and other ICCVAM member agencies will present updates on activities related to the development and validation of test methods and approaches that may replace, reduce, or refine animal use. A new ICCVAM member agency, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, will present an overview of its activities and how they support the ICCVAM mission. NICEATM staff and ICCVAM members will also provide updates on interactions with international partners.

The public forum will run 9:00 a.m. to approximately 4:00 p.m. at the National Institutes of Health Natcher Conference Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Time will be set aside following each presentation for attendees to ask questions. The agenda also includes a public comment session for participants to make oral statements on topics relevant to ICCVAM’s mission and current activities.

Interested persons can attend in person or view the meeting remotely via webcast. While participants viewing the webcast will be able to submit statements via email, those wishing to make a public statement are encouraged to attend in person to enable face-to-face dialog with ICCVAM members. More information is available on the NICEATM website. For planning purposes, those planning to attend in person are encouraged to register by May 13.
