    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method has been designed to examine the subchronic oral toxicity of a test substance during a 90-day period of continuous oral exposure to rats (Rattus norvegicus) following initial acute toxicity tests.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E47 on Biological Effects and Environmental Fate, this test method was withdrawn in February 2010, because other guidelines currently exist.
