Pesticide Safety: Improvements Needed in EPAńˇ╗s Good Laboratory Practices Inspection Program
John Neumann (au)
Pesticides used to control weeds, unwanted insects, and fungi contribute to agricultural productivity and public health by preventing crop damage and controlling pests. However, pesticides may also have adverse effects. The Environmental Protection Agencyńˇ╗s (EPA's) Office of Pesticide Programs (OPP) reviews applications for pesticide products and registers those that it determines do not have unreasonable adverse effects on health and the environment. EPA's Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA) inspects laboratories where these pesticides are tested to ensure that they followed EPA's Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) regulations. FDA also conducts GLP laboratory inspections. This report examines the extent to which EPA (1) inspects for GLP compliance laboratories that test pesticides and the challenges EPA faces in doing so; (2) uses the information obtained through GLP inspections in its pesticide decision-making process; and (3) collaborates with FDA on GLP inspections. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
