    Technical Guidelines are issued to elaborate specific articles of the CoC and related technical aspects of pesticide management. These guidelines provide a framework to establish or strengthen national legislation, institutions, policies and strategies for pest and pesticide management. These guidelines are developed by the FAO/WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Management (JMPM) to ensure an informed and independent process. Older guidelines may have been reviewed through different mechanisms, but always involved broad expert peer review. This Annotated list of Guidelines for the implementation of the International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides provides a brief overview of all Guidelines and their purpose. It is aimed as a hand-out for meetings related to pesticide management to enhance familiarity with, and use of, the available technical guidelines. The annotated list follows the same structure as the actual list of guidelines on the FAO website.

    Book (stand-alone)
    Managing pesticides in agriculture and public health
    A compendium of FAO and WHO guidelines and other resources - Second edition
    2021
    Also available in:

    This second edition of the compendium provides a brief description of all the technical guidance documents, manuals, toolkits, databases and other resources for pesticide management developed by FAO and WHO. These resources support the standards outlined in the International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management by providing detailed information and guidance on how to manage pesticides at the different stages of their life cycle, i.e. from production to disposal of waste. The resources are principally intended for use by governments in low- and middle-income countries but they may also be useful to other stakeholders. The resources cover both agricultural and public health uses of pesticides. The documents listed in this compendium have been prepared, reviewed and adopted by FAO and WHO expert groups including, since 2007, the FAO/ WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Management (JMPM). The compendium will be updated regularly in the future. Older documents included in the compendium are still considered valid as the issues they address have not changed.

    International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management. Guidelines on Highly Hazardous Pesticides
    Guidelines on Highly Hazardous Pesticides. March 2016
    2016
    The FAO/WHO Guidelines on Highly Hazardous Pesticides (HHPs) elaborate upon specific articles in the International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management that address HHPs. This document is intended to provide guidance to countries on how to interpret and apply these articles effectively in order to reduce risks posed by HHPs. Countries are encouraged to identify the HHPs in use, to assess the risks involved and to decide upon appropriate measures to mitigate these risks. These guidelines apply to all pesticides, including agricultural, public health, household, amenity and industrial pesticides. They have been developed by the FAO/WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Management (JMPM).
