What is the Register?
In response to the need for international harmonisation and mutual recognition of qualifications, the UK Register
of Toxicologists, sponsored by
The Royal Society of Biology
and the British Toxicology Society, was established in 1993.
By identifying professional toxicologists with suitable qualifications and experience, it is intended that the Register fosters competence in practice and makes publicly available authoritative sources of information on toxicological matters. The attainment of registration is seen as a significant milestone in a career in toxicology and will become increasingly desirable for career progression. The designation "Registered Toxicologist" is not lightly given and is maintained by regular (5 yearly) review of continuing education and practice in toxicology.
Members of the UK Register of Toxicologists gain automatic membership of the EUROTOX Register of Toxicologists.
