A report from Nordic Workshop on New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) has been published

The Nordic workshop on NAMs was organised by the Norwegian Environment Agency, Nordic risk assessment project (NORAP) and the Nordic Classification Group (NKGI) and took place between the 9th and the 11th of November 2021. The workshop was organised as a webinar. The project was funded by the Nordic Council of Ministers and supported by the Nordic Working Group for Chemicals, Environment, and Health.

The target group of the workshop was hazard and risk assessors in the Nordic countries working with REACH and CLP. The aim of the workshop was to decrease the knowledge gap in the participants, to increase understanding of new methods utilising molecular mechanistic data (especially omics approaches), and to support their use in grouping and read-across methods. It also aimed to identify the needs in the Nordic countries for further capacity building, and guidance in NAM approaches, especially in a regulatory context.

Finally, the workshop aimed to highlight the current main regulatory challenges for NAMs, to exchange opinions and discuss possible ways forward for using NAMs, and to increase the level of knowledge and competence within the relevant authorities in the Nordic countries.
