As a guideline for the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA), Subdivision M provides guidance on developing data on microbial (Part A) and biochemical (PB83-153965) (Part B) pest control agents to determine their fate in the environment and to evaluate potential adverse effects on humans and other nontarget organisms. These guidelines provide detailed information relating to the data requirements listed in 40 CFR Part 158.690 and 158.740, including the conditions under which each data requirement is applicable; the standards for acceptable testing, the information that should be included in a test report; guidance on evaluation and reporting of data and examples of acceptable protocols. In addition, scientific publications are cited in the guidelines to provide useful information for designing test protocols.
