The Standard Evaluation Procedure (SEP) for the Honey Bee Acute Contact LD50 is a guidance document primarily intended for Agency reviewers and the regulated industry who evaluate ecological effects data specified in 40 CFR Part 158.145. The SEP is also intended to provide information to the general public indicating how the Agency evaluates these types of studies. As such, it is designed to supplement Subdivision E of the Pesticide Assessment Guidelines: Hazard Evaluation - Wildlife and Aquatic Organisms. The SEP provides an Introduction, Materials and Methods, Reporting Requirements, Reviewer Evaluation and Appendix of appropriate methods to guide the review and scientific evaluation of pesticide effects on honey bees. The SEP for Honey Bee Acute Contact LD50 is only one of a number of SEP's published by the National Technical Information Service as a supplement to Subdivision E of the Pesticide Assessment Guidelines.
