The birth of the PEPPER platform

The public-private PEPPER platform (public-private platform for the pre-validation of testing methods on endocrine disruptors) is the result of a project led by Ineris and has just been created. Its objective is to organise the pre-validation of methods for characterising endocrine disruptors.

It brings together professional organisations, individual businesses, the Maison de la Chimie foundation, and the relevant ministries involved in the National Strategy on Endocrine Disruptors—the most prevalent of the latter being MTEs.
Resulting from a project led by Ineris and receiving notified body status from the Programme d’Investissement d’Avenir (“Investing for the future programme”) in June 2019, the platform is now led by a non-profit organisation whose founding general meeting was held on 2nd December 2019.
