A draft U.S. Environmental Protection Agency document describing a “Process for Establishing and Implementing Alternative Approaches to Traditional In Vivo Acute Toxicity Studies” is now available for comment. The document describes a transparent, stepwise process for evaluating and implementing alternative methods of testing for acute oral, dermal, and inhalation toxicity, along with skin and eye irritation and skin sensitization. In addition, there is a discussion of the three major phases of the process and the implications for reporting information under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act.

The draft document is on the EPA website at http://www.epa.gov/pesticides/science/draft-alternative-test-method-guidance.pdf. Please submit comments on the document to Christopher Schlosser at schlosser.christopher@epa.gov. Comments will be accepted until March 10.
