China Renews Toxicological Testing Methods for Pesticide Registration

China Renews Toxicological Testing Methods for Pesticide RegistrationOn 12 Jul 2017, the Standardization Administration of China (SAC) issued Announcement 18 of 2017 to promulgate 28 toxicological testing methods for pesticide registration, which will take effect as of 1 Feb 2018 and replace the GB 15670-1995.

As the current and mandatory testing guideline, GB 15760-1995 consists of 23 methods covering six key criteria including acute toxicity, sub-acute toxicity, sub-chronic toxicity and mutagenicity, etc. In this update, 5 more methods are included:

  • Acute oral toxicity test—Up-and-down-procedure;
  • In vitro mammalian cells chromosome aberration test;
  • In vitro mammalian cell gene mutation test;
  • Unscheduled DNA synthesis (UDS) test with mammalian liver cells in vivo;
  • DNA damage and repair/unscheduled DNA synthesis in mammalian cells in vitro;

Together with the first chapter, the methods were released in a separate national standard under the GB 15760-2017 series. The code, Chinese and English name and alternation information are as follows:
