The Standard Evaluation Procedure (SEP) is one of a set of guidance documents to aid EPA chemists in the evaluation of scientific data submitted pursuant to establishment of pesticide and food/feed additive tolerances. Whenever there is a possibility that residues levels in processed foods/feeds may exceed the levels in the raw agricultural commodities from which they are derived, processing data are required (40 CFR 158.125). The SEP explains in a detailed, stepwise fashion how EPA data reviewers evaluate processed food/feed studies, and what type information is taken into consideration in the review process.
