Regulatory Toxicology and Issues

Regulatory toxicology can be defined as the study of the adverse effects of chemicals on humans and other living organisms. It is the study of toxic effects on plants, animals, fungi and insects. Toxicology studies are often needed by regulatory agencies to determine the adverse effects of a chemical product and to assure that it meets the standards for safety that the agency prescribes. Regulatory toxicologists impart guidance and recommendations to risk assessors, risk managers, and policy makers on matters related to human health risks from chemical and pharmaceutical substances. 

Regulatory toxicology is the branch of toxicology (the study of adverse effects of chemicals) that uses scientific knowledge to develop regulations and other strategies for reducing and controlling exposure to dangerous chemicals. The legal framework in this area is promulgated by governmental agencies. Examples of such agencies in the United States are the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Corresponding agencies exist in the European Union (EU) at the national or union level.
