    DescriptionSenior regulatory scientists have published a "call for action" for the EU to focus on developing and implementing new approach methodologies (NAMs) for assessing chemical safety, with a final aim to fully replace animal studies.

    The scientists, including Derek Knight, senior scientific officer at Echa, Hubert Deluyker, former scientific adviser at the European Food Safety Authority (Efsa), and Qasim Chaudhry from the University of Chester, UK, authored the paper in a personal capacity, independent of any institutions.
