Founded in 1980, IUTOX now has 51affiliated societies representing all six continents and over 20,000 toxicologists from industry, academia and government as members; offering a diverse and challenging perspective on every issue and development relating to the profession.

The leadership of IUTOX is held by the Executive Committee (EC), which changes every three years and is elected by the member-society-appointed delegates. The EC reviews and redefines the IUTOX mission to develop and establish objectives and tasks that will ensure that IUTOX continues to be the voice for toxicology internationally.
