To provide excellence in toxicology
The mission of BelTox is to improve chemical hazard and risk assessment practices in Belgium by promoting regular scientific exchange on topics related to toxicology and ecotoxicology among students and professionals from scientific institutions, academia, authorities, industry, consulting companies and contract research organisations.
The scope of BelTox’s activities includes the study of potential adverse effects on health and the environment of a large variety of natural and man-made substances.
These include environmental pollutants, industrial chemicals, pesticides, biocides, food contaminants, food additives, cosmetics, human and veterinary medicines, natural toxins and genetically modified organisms.
BelTox was officially established in June 1989 and is member of the European Societies of Toxicology (EUROTOX).
