    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This test method is designed to assess the potential of a pesticide or chemical to present a hazard to the unborn arising from exposure of the maternal animal during pregnancy.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee E47 on Biological Effects and Environmental Fate, this test method was withdrawn in February 2010, because other guidelines currently exist.
