How To Join

An online facility to join the IVTS is available here.

The IVTS welcomes new members who are involved in the practice, study or management of toxicology or with a scientific interest in the subject. The IVTS and its members are committed to the 3Rs and take every opportunity to reduce and refine the use of animals where this can be achieved, and to replace the need for animals altogether whenever this is possible. However, the society supports the continued ethical use of laboratory animals when there is a clear and important need, and when the benefits of their use cannot be realised in any other way. Please see our policy on the use of animals for more information .  Acceptance of this policy is a condition of membership of the IVTS.

Application for membership of the society shall be made to the Membership Secretary via our online facility. Applicants shall be considered within two weeks by the IVTS committee. The committee’s decision on application acceptance shall be final and there shall be no right of appeal. Continued membership is dependent on receipt of an annual subscription.
