The first step is to determine the chemical, physical, and biological characteristics of the compound. Data on the manufacturing of the compound, as well as information to prove that the compound will remain stable (stability tests) throughout the time it will be used in the preclinical studies, are required before administering it to animals. Once the compound has been characterized and deemed stable, preclinical studies can begin. The type of studies and their design can vary depending on the compound but the purpose is to characterize the toxic effects of a compound on different organs and biological processes and their relationship to exposure.

The WHO will also publish the results as a WHO Public Assessment Report. Following the process, the manufacturers need to keep the WHO informed of any changes or variance to the previous manufacturing process, and re-evaluations are performed at least at five-year intervals. 3.
