      Toxic Exposure Surveillance System (TESS) data are compiled by the American Association of Poison Control Centers (AAPCC) on behalf of US poison centers. These data are used to identify hazards early, focus prevention education, guide clinical research, direct training, and detect chem/bioterrorism incidents. TESS data have prompted product reformulations, repackaging, recalls, and bans; are used to support regulatory actions; and form the basis of postmarketing surveillance of newly released drugs and products.
