Scientific validation : A crucial and unavoidable prerequisite to the acceptability of new tests and testing strategies
Although there is an increasing willingness to accept, in principle, the incorporation of non-animal toxicity tests and testing strategies into regulatory practice, their relevance and reliability must first be established in recognised validation studies, the outcomes of which must be assessed by independent groups of experts.
