    This volume contains monographs prepared at the eighty-fifth meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met in Geneva, Switzerland, from 17 to 26 October 2017. The toxicological monographs in this volume summarize data on the veterinary drug residues that were evaluated toxicologically by the Committee: amoxicillin, ampicillin, ethion, flumethrin, halquinol and lufenuron. Annexed to the report is a summary of the Committee’s recommendations on these and other drugs discussed at the eighty-fifth meeting, including acceptable daily intakes (ADIs), acute reference doses (ARfDs) andproposed maximum residue limits (MRLs). This volume and others in the WHO Food Additives Series contain information that is useful to those who produce and use food additives and veterinary drugs and those involved with controlling contaminants in food, government and food regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories and universities.

    This volume contains monographs prepared at the eightieth meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met inRome, Italy, from 16 to 25 June 2015. The toxicological and dietary exposure monograph in this volume summarizes the safety and dietary exposure data on a contaminant group (pyrrolizidine alkaloids) discussed at the eightieth meeting. Monographs on seven food additives discussed at that meeting have been previously published in the WHO Food Additives series (FAS 71), and a monograph on a second contaminant group (non-dioxin-like polychlorinated biphenyls) has been published as a separate supplement in the WHO Food Additives series. This volume and others in the WHO Food Additives series contain information that is useful to those who produce and use food additives and veterinary drugs and those involved with controlling contaminants in food, government and food regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories and universities.

    This volume contains monographs prepared at the ninety-fifth meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met virtually during 6–17 and 22 June 2022. The toxicological and dietary exposure monographs in this volume summarize the safety and dietary exposure data on eight specific food additives: α-amlyase (JECFA95-1 and JECFA95-2) from Geobacillus stearothermophilus expressed in Bacillus licheniformis; α-amlyase (JECFA95-3) from Rhizomucor pusillus expressed in Aspergillus niger; amyloglucosidase (JECFA95-4) from Rasamsonia emersonii expressed in Aspergillus niger; asparaginase (JECFA95-5) from Pyrococcus furiosus expressed in Bacillus subtilis; β-amylase (JECFA95-6) from Bacillus flexus expressed in Bacillus licheniformis; lipase (JECFA95-7) from Thermomyces lanuginosus and Fusarium oxysporum expressed in Aspergillus oryzaei; and xylanase (JECFA95-9) from Bacillus licheniformis expressed in Bacillus licheniformis. An addendum summarizes the safety and dietary exposure data on a group of related flavouring agents (alicyclic ketones, secondary alcohols and related esters). This volume and others in the WHO Food Additives series contain information that is useful to those who produce and use food additives and veterinary drugs, those involved in the control of contaminants in food, government and food regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories and universities.
