This practical book provides toxicologists with essential information on the regulations that govern their jobs and products. Regulatory Toxicology, Third Edition is an up-to-date guide to required safety assessment for the entire range of man-made marketed products. Individual chapters written by experts with extensive experience in the field address requirements not only for human pharmaceuticals and medical devices (for which there are available guidances), but for the full range of man-made products. New in this edition are three chapters addressing Safety Data Sheet Preparation, Regulatory Requirements for GMOs, and Regulatory Requirements for Tobacco and Marijuana. The major administrative divisions for regulatory agencies and their main responsibilities are also detailed, as are the basic filing documents the agencies require.
Coverage includes food additives, dietary supplements, cosmetics, over-the-counter drugs, personal care and consumer products, agriculture and GMO products, industrial chemicals, air and drinking water regulations and the special cases of California’s Proposition 65, requirements for safety data sheets, and oversight regulations. Both US and international requirements are clearly presented and referenced. In one volume, those who have regulatory responsibility in companies, lawyers, educators, and those selling these materials in the marketplace can learn about regulatory requirements and how to meet them.
