Editorial Reviews

To the companies that manufacture agrochemicals and to the scientists who test the health and environmental effects of these chemicals, the Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Standards revisions, which were enacted in October 1989, mean that GLPs are no longer simply an option, but rather are an operational requirement. Representing industry, field and laboratory research, and government agencies, contributions outline approaches for successful compliance and avoidance of common mistakes. Appendices contain the text of the GLP Standards, forms for submitting data, a question-and-answer section, and the EPA's recently enacted penalty policy. Annotation c.
