Suggested Format for Acute Toxicity Studies

The purpose of this document is to suggest the format for final reports on pesticide studies (right column of the tables in the document) and to provide instructions for the creation of PDF Version 1.3 electronic submission documents (left column of the tables). The same format is appropriate for oral, dermal, primary eye irritation, and skin irritation studies. Slightly different formats are appropriate for acute toxicity - inhalation and skin sensitization study reports.

You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
