EPA announces final test guidelines for endocrine disruptor screening

Used in testing pesticides and chemical substances

Posted September 2, 2015

EPA has announced the availability of three Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) final test guidelines: Medaka Extended One-generation Reproduction Test (MEOGRT), OCSPP Test Guideline 890.2200; Larval Amphibian Growth and Development Assay (LAGDA), OCSPP Test Guideline 890.2300; and Avian Two-generation Toxicity Test in the Japanese Quail (JQTT), OCSPP Test Guideline 890.2100.

These test guidelines are part of a series of test guidelines established by OCSPP for use in testing pesticides and chemical substances, and serve as a compendium of accepted scientific methodologies and protocols that are intended to provide data to inform regulatory decisions. The test guidelines provide guidance for conducting the test and are also used by EPA, the public, and companies that are subject to data submission requirements under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), and/or the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).
