OCSPP Harmonized Test Guidelines

Series 885 - Microbial Pesticide Test Guidelines

The FINAL guidelines on this page are part of a series of test guidelines that have been developed by the Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) for use in the testing of pesticides and toxic substances, and the development of test data for submission to the Agency. 

A Master List (PDF) (28 pp, 80K, About PDF) of the OCSPP Harmonized Test Guidelines is available | Microsoft Excel Version (84K) (Excel viewer Exit EPA Disclaimer)
