Regulatory science

While the reconsideration process is one that is supported by a legislative and administrative framework, the decision to review an agricultural or veterinary chemical is based on the scientific weight of evidence that a review is necessary. The ensuing process of assessing human health or environmental risks (or both) is underpinned by regulatory science and well-established risk assessment methodologies used internationally by counterpart regulatory authorities and international bodies such as the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. Fundamentally, regulatory science is the application of the scientific method to regulatory decision making, driven by the use of all of the available relevant data and expert judgement to make consistent risk management decisions.
