GLP Product Chemistry Studies

EPL has successfully completed over 500 reports for submission to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and foreign regulatory bodies on behalf of more than 40 pesticide registrants including a variety of active ingredients (AI) and impurities. IMG_6927cAll Product Chemistry studies are conducted in compliance with EPA’s Office of Chemical Safety and Pollution Prevention (OCSPP) (formerly called the “Office of Prevention, Pesticides and Toxic Substances” and “OPPTS”) OCSPP 830 Harmonized Product Properties Test Guidelines. Preliminary analysis (5-Batch Analysis), physical/chemical characterization, and enforcement method validation studies are performed routinely on products encompassing most pesticide classes, including anti-microbial pesticides.

  • Preliminary (5- Batch) Analysis
    OCSPP 830.1700 (previously OPPTS 830.1700)
  • Physical/Chemical Characterization
    OCSPP 830.6302-830.7950 (previously OPPTS 830.6302-830.7950)
  • Test, Control and Reference Substance Characterization
    Purity Determination, Identity Confirmation, GLP Certificate of Analysis (COA)

GLP Residue Chemistry Studies

As an integral part of the pesticide registration process, residue chemistry services are important to agrochemical companies. Residue chemistry guidelines are required to monitor IMG_6949dthe safety of pesticide use in human food and animal feed. Residue Chemistry is also integral to the assessment of dietary risks associated with pesticide use. As a Good Laboratory Practices (GLP) compliant agricultural chemistry laboratory, EPL BAS is a contract research organization (CRO) that provides residue chemistry data needed to meet the requirements of registration guidelines. In addition to analytical capabilities, EPL BAS Scientists have a complete understanding of the regulatory concerns on which the guidelines are based.

Scientists at EPL BAS have the knowledge and expertise to provide the most accurate agrochemical data for successful pesticide registration. EPL BAS has repeatedly demonstrated these capabilities to provide timely and efficient completion of residue chemistry studies.
