Practice for Determining Acute Oral LD50 for Testing Vertebrate Control Agents (Withdrawn 2000)
|Publication Date:||10 November 1995|
|ICS Code (Other products of the chemical industry):||71.100.99|
1.1 This practice covers the determination of acute oral LD50 for testing vertebrate control agents. Because the acute oral LD50 functions as a significant criterion for evaluation of vertebrate control agents, general guidelines for performing the tests have been stated. However, since specific modifications may be required for each biological group, this practice represents only a common denominator. Necessary modifications and additions will be cited in the appropriate test documents for each biological group.
