Welcome to the web page for the ICOH scientific committee on Occupational Toxicology.

We hope to share news on forthcoming meetings, past meetings and any administrative forms that may be necessary.

Details of the current Chair and Secretary of the group are available on the ICOH website.

There is also a LinkedIn group, available to SCOT members and non-members to keep up-to-date with ICOH SCOT's activities.

Photo Book of ISBM-10, Naples, Italy now available

Following the successful ISBM-10 conference in Italy in October, a photo book is now available.  The conference was a great success with nearly 200 delegates from 29 countries.

We are now looking for candidates to host the next ISBM.
If you are interested in hosting a future conference, please review the guidelines on our web page and contact the Secretary to express your interest.


Iam delighted to announce that the next International Symposium on Biological Monitoring will take place 2 - 4 October 2017 in Naples, Italy.  A website with further details will be available from the end of September but in the meantime mark the date in your diary and start thinking of good research to present at the meeting!  Please see the attached announcement for further details and to share with colleagues - your assistance in publicising the conference is much appreciated.
My thanks to Maurizio Manno for taking on the organisation of this conference and continuing the series.

SCOT guidelines for membership criteria and the application process

Membership criteria

The guidelines are based on the criteria set out in the ICOH Guidelines for Scientific Committees but provide some clarification on the expectations of SCOT members.

  • SCOT members must be a member of ICOH in Good Standing (i.e. payments up-to-date)
  • Members must not already be members of more than two other Scientific Committees (the ICOH maximum is three committees per member)
  • Members should participate actively in the committee e.g. through attending SCOT conferences, business meetings and/or responding to SCOT Officers with regard to new member applications, group decisions etc.
  • Applicants for membership must be currently professionally active in one of the following fields - toxicology, biological monitoring, risk assessment, occupational health/medicine or occupational/industrial hygiene.  Other areas may be considered if the applicant can demonstrate relevance to occupational toxicology.  Existing SCOT members may remain on the committee beyond retirement providing that they are actively contributing as defined above.
  • A current publication record in occupational toxicology, biological monitoring or risk assessment.  This is required to fulfil ICOH's criterion of pursuing academic excellence within the committee.


Application process

Applications can be received at any time and will be considered on an ongoing basis by email, without need for a business meeting to be convened.  Anyone wishing to join SCOT, who fulfils the eligibility criteria above, should send a brief CV and a list of relevant publications to the Secretary (contact details available from the ICOH website).
