The views or positions expressed in this publication do not necessarily represent in legal terms the official position of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). EFSA assumes no responsibility or liability for any errors or inaccuracies that may appear.

In November 2015, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) proposed a collaboration with the OECD to explore the possibility to establish a battery of in vitro assays for the investigation of developmental neurotoxicity (DNT) potential of chemicals. A project proposal was submitted by EFSA to the Test Guidelines Programme for the organisation of a joint international workshop. This report, agreed by the co-chairs, summarises the discussions and outcomes of the joint OECD/EFSA workshop on DNT, held on 18-19 October, 2016, in Brussels, Belgium.
