Endocrine disruptor screening program

From the beginning, we have been committed to helping you navigate your way through the endocrine disruptor screening program (EDSP) to obtain a successful outcome. Envigo hit the ground running as soon as the EDSP was announced by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and we remain in the forefront of EDSP testing. We started validation of the required tests as soon as the EPA regulations and requirements were published, and all our EDSP studies continue to be fully accepted by the EPA.

We can ally with you at all points in the EDSP process by answering your questions, helping you to arrive at a strategy, providing testing and giving you the regulatory support you may need.

Our screening program comprises of two tiers of testing:

  • Tier one identifies the chemicals that have the potential to interact with the endocrine system.
  • Tier two determines the endocrine-related effects and establishes the dose at which the effects occur.

The endocrine disruptor screening program (EDSP) is the US Environmental Protection Agency’s initiative for the screening of chemicals that may have the potential to cause endocrine disrupting effects such as those affecting the estrogen, androgen and thyroid hormone systems.

If the endocrine disruptor screening program (EDSP) affects you, then you may be interested in some background information on the legislation and the studies required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
