This webpage gives information about a series of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) raised by testing laboratories about implementation of GLP, along with responses prepared by the Working Group on GLP. This current version concerns questions about Quality Assurance, and the FAQ document will be amended, from time-to-time, to include new questions and answers.
This section addresses questions and answers regarding the OECD Test Guidelines Programme (TGP).

OECD Work Related to Endocrine Disrupters
This document describes four quantitative methods for efficacy evaluation: bactericidal, mycobactericidal, fungicidal and virucidal. Regulatory authorities have relied upon efficacy data generated using these methods to authorise the placing of biocidal products on the market.
The objective of the Guidance Document is to provide guidance on how to interpret the outcome of individual tests and how to increase evidence on whether or not a substance may be an endocrine disrupter. However, testing strategies or guidance on interpretation from a suite of tests are not given.

In 2012, the Joint Meeting agreed on the status of deleted and former versions of Test Guidelines with regards to the Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD). An 18-month transitional period between the Council Decision and the effective date of deletion was agreed, after which no new test using the deleted or the former version of a Test Guideline can be initiated.
