On January 30, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published a notice to announce it is collecting public comments on three draft test guidelines for its Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP). The new draft guidelines relate to three non-mammalian species tests, which are part of the program’s Tier 2. This means they will be used for substances that have been shown to potentially interact with the endocrine system in Tier 1 testing. Comments must be received by March 31, 2015.
