Exposure data described in § 158.1070(d) are required based upon toxicity and exposure criteria.

(a) Toxicity criteria.(1) Evidence of potentially significant adverse health effects have been observed in any applicable toxicity study.
(2) Scientifically sound epidemiological or poisoning incident data indicate that adverse health effects may have resulted from post-application exposure to the pesticide.
(b) Exposure criteria. The need for data from potential exposure resulting from situations not covered by this paragraph should be discussed with the Agency.
