    Pesticide residues in food 2004 - Report 2004

    The annual Joint Meeting of the FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues in Food and the Environment and WHO Core Assessment Group on Pesticide Residues was held in Rome, Italy, from 20 to 29 September 2004. The FAO Panel of Experts had met in Preparatory Sessions from 15 to 19 September. The meeting was held in pursuance of recommendations made by previous meetings and accepted by the governing bodies of FAO and WHO that studies should be undertaken jointly by experts to evaluate possible haz ards to humans arising from the occurrence of pesticide residues in foods. During the meeting the FAO Panel of Experts was responsible for reviewing pesticide use patterns (good agricultural practices), data on the chemistry and composition of the pesticides and methods of analysis for pesticide residues and for estimating the maximum residue levels that might occur as a result of the use of the pesticides according to good agricultural practices. The WHO Core Assessment Group was responsible fo r reviewing toxicological and related data and for estimating, where possible, acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) of the pesticides for humans. This report contains information on ADIs, maximum residue levels and general principles for the evaluation of pesticides. The recommendations of the joint meeting, including further research and information, are proposed for use by Member Governments of the respective agencies and other interested parties.

    The Meeting was held in pursuance of recommendations made by previous Meetings and accepted by the governing bodies of FAO and WHO that studies should be undertaken jointly by experts to evaluate possible hazards to humans arising from the occurrence of residues of pesticides in foods. The reports of previous Meetings (see Annex 5) contain information on acceptable daily intakes (ADIs), acute reference doses (ARfDs), MRLs, and the general principles that have been used for evaluating pestici des. The supporting documents (residue and toxicological evaluations) contain detailed monographs on these pesticides and include evaluations of analytical methods.

    Evaluation of certain veterinary drug residues in food
    Eighty-eighth report of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives
    2020
    Also available in:

    This report represents the conclusions of a Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee convened to evaluate the safety of residues of certain veterinary drugs in food and to recommend maximum levels for such residues in food. The first part of the report considers general principles regarding the evaluation of residues of veterinary drugs within the terms of reference of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), including harmonization of residue definition, use of scientific literature in risk assessment, toxicological profiling of compounds and less-than-lifetime dietary exposure assessment, combined exposure to multiple chemicals, and microbiological effects on the safety evaluation of veterinary drug residues in food. Summaries follow the Committee’s evaluations of toxicological and residue data on a variety of veterinary drugs: three insecticides (diflubenzuron, ethion and flumethrin), three antimicrobials (fosfomycin, halquinol and ivermectin) and one antiparasitic agent (selamectin). Annexed to the report is a summary of the Committee’s recommendations on these drugs, including acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) and proposed MRLs.
