GOOD LABORATORY PRACTICES FOR IR-4 FOOD USE PROJECTS IN FLORIDA AND PUERTO RICO

The amended Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) Good Laboratory Practice (GLP) Standards (40 CFR Part 160) regulations became effective on October 16, 1989. The revisions require all studies submitted to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in support of pesticide registration to be in compliance with the regulations. Tolerances and registrations of pesticides under FIFRA require high standards of data quality and integrity. To assure this, the GLP standards delineate practices and procedures that must be followed during data collection. Residue data are required for obtaining residue tolerances for minor use pesticides in or on food and feed crops. Field researchers from Florida and Puerto Rico, cooperating in the Southern Region of the Interregional Research Project No. 4 (IR-4 Project) minor use pesticide program, have conducted field trials for the magnitude of pesticide residues on minor use crops. From 1989 to 1994, 98 IR- 4 supported field trials were conducted under GLPs on tropical crops in Florida and Puerto Rico.
