New Methodologies for Chemical Risk Assessment
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of how chemicals are traditionally regulated in the U.S. as well as the methods used through NAMs to identify chemical risks. 


A tapestry of laws covers the chemicals people are exposed to in the United States, at least 3221 chemical signatures in pooled human blood samples, many appear to be exogenous. Different testing requirements exist for food additives, pharmaceuticals, and pesticide active ingredients. Most other chemicals, ranging from industrial waste to dyes to packing materials, are covered by the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). New approach methodologies (NAMs) are being considered to inform prioritization of chemicals for testing and evaluation.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to chemical engineers and professionals who are interested in learning more about the new approaches to chemical risk management.
