European Registered Toxicologist (ERT)
Dansk Selskab for Toksikologi og Farmakologi (DSTF) varetager det nationale danske register over ERT-registrerede toksikologer efter standarder vedtaget af EUROTOX. Det danske register er en del af EUROTOX’ internationale ERT-register, og ERT-godkendte toksikologer i Danmark vil opnå optagelse i begge registre. Toksikologer kan ansøge om optagelse i det nationale danske ERT-register, såfremt de opfylder optagelsesbetingelserne samt bor og/eller arbejder i Danmark. Find mere information her.

- Application for EUROTOX recognition of courses
EUROTOX has established a procedure to recognize courses as part of the comprehensive theoretical training for registration of toxicologists as European registered toxicologist ERT or continuing professional development (CPD) for the purpose of maintaining ERT registration. The aim of the recognition is to make it easier for individuals to find suitable courses. However national registers still decide whether the EUROTOX recognised course is recognised in the national recognition system.
Information on EUROTOX recognition of courses is available in Annex 2 to the ERT guideline: https://www.eurotox.com/ert/
For the list of currently recognized courses see https://www.eurotox.com/courses-for-ert/
The application form can be found here. Deadlines for application for recognition is March 1 and October 1, each year.
