The American College of Toxicology was a division of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) and it is closely related to the Toxicology Forum and the Society of Toxicology, all of which are run by the same executives out of the same Washington DC headquarters.

The College appears to be a legitimate training arm of the ILSI -- which itself is a major lobbyist for the food, chemical and drug companies. The ILSI and its associated entities are difficult to characterise because they obviously have legitimate scientific members, run legitimate scientific programs and training, but also provide cover for extensive global lobbying operations run on behalf of the funding industries.
