Toxicology in Mammals, Avian, Fish, Reptiles, and Insects
Considerable legislation (FIFRA, TSCA) has been developed to protect people and the environment from possible harmful effects of chemicals. The Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, Rodenticide Act first passed in 1947 established procedures for registering pesticides with the USDA. in 1972 a major revision transferred responsibility of pesticide regulation to the EPA and shifted the emphasis to protection of the environment. The Toxic Substances Control Act passed in 1976 regulates the introduction of new or already existing Chemicals. Acute and subchronic toxicity testing protocols provide fundamental data for evaluating products to inform both manufacturers and the public of potential hazards. Industries of significant economic and societal importance rely on safe use of effective chemicals for a multitude of useful and beneficial purposes. STILLMEADOW, Inc. takes pride in its ability to provide the toxicology services needed for premanufacture notification, registration of pesticides, labeling and safe handling recommendations for consumers and employees.
