"Draft Test Guidelines; Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program Test Guidelines (Series 890); Three Tier 2 Non-Mammalian Tests; Notice of Availability and Request for Comment
Pages 5107 - 5109 [FR DOC # 2015-01836]

SUMMARY: EPA is announcing the availability of three draft test guidelines for public review and comment that are being added to its 890 Series, entitled ``Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program Test Guidelines.'' The draft guidelines relate to the following three non-mammalian species tests identified under Tier 2 of the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP): Japanese quail 2-generation reproduction test; Medaka extended 1-generation reproduction test; and Larval amphibian growth and development assay. These draft test guidelines are part of a series of test guidelines established by the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) for use in testing pesticides and chemical substances. The test guidelines 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 submit data to EPA.

DATES: Comments must be received on or before March 31, 2015."
