What is ERT?

To be ERT, or a European Registered Toxicologist, means that you have documented knowledge and experience in toxicology (toxicology/ecotoxicology) which meet the criteria set by EUROTOX.


The overarching goal with ERT is to assure one’s competence in the toxicology area, to facilitate international recruitment, to improve career development and to support development and education within the field of toxicology. To date, ERT is present in 17 European countries and an increasing number of international companies and authorities consider ERT to be a merit when recruiting new personnel.

Since the ERT-register is for active toxicologists an approved ERT-registration is valid for five years. Thereafter, you need to renew your application. Title renewal is a quicker process, but you still need to fill in a new, and complete, ERT application with updated merits. ERT title renewal can be done in the same country as you originally applied, or on another country’s association that issues the tile. See a detailed description in the Swedish set of regulations for ERT. By submitting an ERT application you consent to that SFT is allowed to handle the information that you have sent in. The purpose is to be able to make a decision and to construct a register over ERT. You can at any time ask us to modify or remove your information. This can be done by sending an email to An approved ERT which is not updated within a year after a terminated ERT period will be removed from the register.


Applications that arrive after the application deadline will be processed at the following meeting of the ERT committee.
