Chemicals are evaluated based on the characteristics of the hazardous agent, route of administration, the dose, the length of the study, and the animal species used.

If you plan to conduct research studies that involve administering drugs or chemicals to animals, review the Chemical Notice of Intent Guidelines available at  The Guidelines provide information on how to obtain Chemical Safety Approval.

Additionally, you will find examples of the types of chemicals the Committee needs to evaluate.
