Welcome to the HUGIN SWiFT Project Site

The purpose of this website is to provide information, examples and tutorials on Bayesian networks in relation to the SWiFT project.

Under the menu item Resources you will find a number of examples on the use of Bayesian networks.

The content of this web site will be extended as the project work progresses.

Objective of the SWiFT project

The Fish Embryo Toxicity (FET) test was submitted as a proposed OECD test guideline in 2006 as an alternative approach to the acute fish toxicity (AFT) test (OECD, 2019a). After an extensive laboratory ring trial, taking several years of work and covering multiple classes of chemicals, the test was validated and adopted as an official OECD Test Guideline (Busquet et al., 2014; OECD, 2013). However, unilateral acceptance of the test method was not approved until the term alternative approach was removed from the guideline.

The objective of the Strengthening Weight of Evidence for FET data to replace acute Fish Toxicity (SWiFT) project is to provide a conclusive framework that supports the full adoption and acceptance of FET data to routinely fulfil the regulatory requirements for AFT data.
