SCAHT offers toxicological advice also to the media, the public and third parties

Please contact us if you need information on the toxicity and/or regulation of chemicals or other agents encountered in the workplace, home, or other environments. We will attempt to answer enquiries ourselves, or pass them on to appropriate specialists in the Swiss toxicology network.

As we provide advice to the Swiss regulatory authorities, we are unfortunately unable to help with matters concerning the authorisation or registration of specific substances or products. We will try however to identify the appropriate specialists in the Swiss toxicology network who may be able to help further.
