EPA's pesticide program reviews subject studies in support of drinking water exposure and ecological risk assessments. The two guidance documents provide study review guides and a report guide to help our scientists uniformly consider issues, data, and formatting relevant to efficiently review environmental fate studies.You may need a PDF reader to view some of the files on this page. See EPA’s About PDF page to learn more.
