Experts Workshop on Read-Across Assessment with active support from Cefic-LRI
The workshop was divided into two parts: the objective of the first day (2 October, closed session) was to exchange views between ECHA, the Commission and the Member States on the assessment of the read-across approach in a dossier. During the second day (3 October), the discussion expanded to what constitutes a robust scientific justification for read-across. The second day was organised with the active support of Cefic Long-range Research Initiative (LRI) and was open to various stakeholders.
