Editorial Reviews

No date or location are noted for the symposium, which was called to raise the level of understanding about the different national registration procedures now current, to discuss the international pesticide product registration process, and to provide a forum to synchronize technical and regulatory requirement for producing universal data quality standards. Contributors from government and industry in many countries offer 34 papers on such topics as international harmonization through ISO, good laboratory practice regulations of the US Environmental Protection Agency, an industry perspective on the Food Quality Protection Act of 1996, the environmental assessment of pesticides in Brazil, and good laboratory practices and pesticide regulation in Japan. The subject index is very detailed. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
