The pathogenicity of biological control fungi is reviewed with reference to their infectivity, toxigenicity and allergenicity. The fungi used in biological control are considered against the risks they present to man and animals by inhalation, dermal contact and by ingestion of their spores or metabolites. The stages of risk, the need for quality control and safety testing of the agent, are discussed and suggestions made for an approach to the risk analysis and registration requirements for the control fungi.
