Membership with ACTRA
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
- cultivate (and maintain) the highest standards of professional practice and ethics in persons engaged in the sciences of toxicology and health risk assessment.
Membership of ACTRA is open to those working in the fields of toxicology and risk assessment. All members receive electronic newsletters and subsidised meeting or workshop registration fees.
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.
