Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Validation of Alternative Methods (ICCVAM) is comprised of representatives from 15 U.S. Federal regulatory and research agencies that use, generate, or disseminate toxicological information. ICCVAM promotes the scientific validation and regulatory acceptance of toxicological test methods that more accurately assess the safety or hazards of chemicals and products and that reduce, refine (decrease or eliminate pain and distress), and/or replace animal use.

Scientific Advisory Committee on Alternative Toxicological Methods (SACATM) is a federally advisory committee chartered in response to the ICCVAM Authorization Act of 2000. SACATM provides advice on priorities and activities related to the development, validation, scientific review, regulatory acceptance, implementation, and national and international harmonization of new, revised, and alternative toxicological test methods.
