The Australasian College of Toxicology and Risk Assessment Inc (ACTRA) has been established since July 2006.

ACTRA aims to:

  • advance the study and applications of toxicology and health risk assessment as professional scientific disciplines, and

Registration with ACTRA

An important objective in establishing ACTRA was to initiate a process whereby the professional standing and credentials of Australian and New Zealand toxicologists and health risk assessors (HRAs) could receive some type of formal, peer-reviewed recognition. In furtherance of this objective, ACTRA has established a professional Register of Toxicologists and HRAs.
