The European Union Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) has published an extremely comprehensive report on all its activities related to human and ecological health, the development and validation of alternative methods, and information dissemination, and regulatory implementation. The report contains summaries of, e.g., EURL ECVAM’s activities in the OECD AOP Programme, status updates on all of the methods recently submitted for review, databases of test methods and validation reference chemicals, and collaborations with other organizations.
