A project funded by the German Environment Agency was performed to provide scientifically robust and practical information on the variability of the endpoints assessed in earthworm field studies, the statistical significance of the results and the level of the statistically detectable effects of the chemicals tested with the aim of developing suggestions for improving the […]
A proposal was prepared for the post-authorisation monitoring of veterinary medicinal products, in particular parasiticides. Such a monitoring might especially be useful for parasiticides identified as PBT substances, i.e., substances that are toxic (T), persist in the environment (P) and bioaccumulate (B). Based on a literature search, issues are discussed that have to be considered […]
This project has three aims: (1) to compile and critically evaluate standardised earthworm field studies in order to optimise the current test design, (2) to perform a pilot earthworm field study following the improved test design, and (3) to prepare an OECD draft guidance document. After having discussed different design options within the OECD-GSIG expert […]
