Regulators carefully review all studies for GLP compliance and any intentional GLP violation (such as false or misleading information/data about the health or environmental risks) is a violation of federal law. These laws are enforced, so both the company responsible and the laboratory doing the work take GLP guidelines very seriously.
In summary, regulators do not base any registration decisions on secret studies. Importantly, the industry research Task Force has taken the additional step of publishing the research data submitted to regulators in peer-reviewed journals.
As part of our initiative, the Task Force works closely with regulatory agencies to gather the most up to date information and share the most pertinent findings with the general public.
