Background Report on Pre-Validation of an OECD Springtail Test Guideline


The aim of the present project was to develop a draft proposal for an OECD test guideline for long-term toxicity testing of Collembola. The draft guideline was based on two existing standardised test methods, one for Folsomia fimetaria and one for Folsomia candida, which were combined and updated. To prepare for a ring-test of the draft test guideline three compounds were tested fipronil, 3,5-dichlorophenol and boric acid. Future test concentration ranges were identified for these compounds.
