The Standard Evaluation Procedure (SEP) describes the procedures used by EPA to evaluate residue studies on seed treatments, crops grown for seed, post-harvest fumigation, and other post-harvest treatments. First, the classification of seed treatments and treatments of crops grown for seed as non-food or food use is examined. Requirements for a treatment to be classified as a non-food use are described. Second, post-harvest fumigation of crops and processed foods and feeds is examined in detail. A description of important parameters which should be considered in evaluation of these studies is provided, as well as an Appendix which lists these considerations and others. Finally, post-harvest treatment (except fumigation) of crops and processed foods and feeds is discussed.
