    The monographs in this volume of the FAO JECFA Monographs on the residues of, statements on, or other parameters of the veterinary drugs on the agenda were prepared by the invited experts for the sixty-sixth meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) held in Rome, Italy, 22-28 February, 2006. This was the seventeenth meeting of JECFA convened specifically to consider residues of veterinary drugs in food animals. The Committee has evaluated residues of veterinary drug s in food animals at the 12th, 26th, 27th, 32nd, 34th, 36th, 38th, 40th, 42nd, 43rd, 45th, 47th, 48th, 50th, 52nd, 54th, 58th, 60th, and 62nd meetings (Ref. 1-15 and 19-22, respectively). The tasks for the Committee were to further elaborate principles for evaluating the safety of residues of veterinary drugs in food and for establishing acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) and recommend maximum residue limits (MRLs) for substances on the agenda when they are administered to food producing animals in accordance with good veterinary practice in the use of veterinary drugs. The enclosed monographs provided the scientific basis for the recommendations of MRLs. There are two significant items in this volume of the FAO JECFA Monographs to bring to the attention of readers. First, this volume is the first in a new format for the presentation of monographs from meetings of the Committee. Second, this was the first meeting of JECFA subsequent to the completion of the workshop to update the principl es and methods of risk assessment for MRLs for pesticides and veterinary drugs, held jointly by FAO/RIVM/WHO, in Bilthoven, The Netherlands, 7 - 11 November, 2005. Specifically, the Committee decided to implement one of the more significant recommendations in the workshop report – the concept of using median residue values to estimate daily intakes of residues of veterinary drugs in food for chronic exposure intake estimates (Ref. 24).
