3Rs implementation in veterinary vaccine batch-release testing: Current state-of-the-art and future opportunities
Europe & USA Webinar

October 6, 2022
3:00 – 5:00OM CEST // 9:00 – 11:00AM EDT

Meeting objectives : 

The webinar aims to outline the state-of-the-art non-animal approaches for veterinary vaccines batch-release testing. It includes information on the state of the deletion of obsolete safety testing, and about the current initiatives taken so far by European, North and South America stakeholders on 3Rs implementation and regulatory acceptance.

 This webinar is part of a series of events, webinars and a face-to-face workshop, to act as a collective venue of discussion and alignment on current and future opportunities to facilitate the implementation and global regulatory alignment of new non-animal batch release testing.
