Post Graduate Diploma/Executive Diploma in Regulatory Toxicology


Regulatory Toxicology is a scientific knowledge applied to develop regulations and procedures for controlling exposure to dangerous chemicals.

It is the study of the adverse effects of chemicals or physical agents on living organisms. A toxicologist is a scientist that determines the harmful effects of agents and the cellular, biochemical, and molecular mechanisms responsible for the effects.

Adverse effects statistics are obtained either from experimental systems using animals or cell cultures, or from epidemiological studies of humans. Techniques applied for the execution of the batch compliance to Good Laboratory Practices (GLPs) which is the key to international acceptance of safety data/reports on industrial and consumable products. It eliminates the ground for expensive repetitions and expedites regulatory decisions which in-turn benefits both the society and the industry.

The field of regulatory toxicology has grown enormously as the intersection between regulation and toxicology has expanded dramatically. Regulatory agencies increasingly rely on toxicological science to identify potential hazards, prioritize chemicals and other potentially toxic substances, and provide the data used for assessing risk. Regulators are not merely consumers of toxicological studies but also help shape toxicology science in important ways. Regulatory programmes have provided a major impetus for improvements in toxicology methods, and they have stimulated a demand for toxicology studies that meet various regulatory requirements.
