A listing of regional poison control centers and the agricultural commissioners for each county is given. A list of laboratories certified for cholinesterase testing by the California Department of Health Services, and a description of sample collection procedures in clinical and forensic cases are provided. California public health requirements, with sample reporting forms, are given. Explanations of workers' compensation coverage are provided.
