    Residue evaluation of certain veterinary drugs. Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA). 66th meeting 2006 2006

    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).

    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 Seventy-fifth Meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), held in Rome, Italy, 7–17-November 2011. This was the nineteenth meeting of JECFA convened specifically to consider residues of veterinary drugs in food-producing animal species. The Committee had evaluated residues o f veterinary drugs at its 12th, 26th, 27th, 32nd, 34th, 36th, 38th, 40th,42nd, 43rd, 45th, 47th, 48th, 50th, 52nd, 54th, 58th, 60th, 62nd, 66th and 70th meetings (JECFA, various dates 1969–2010). 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 an imals 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 is an important feature to bring to the attention of readers. This volume of the FAO JECFA Monographs is the third in a new format for the presentation of monographs from meetings of the Committee specifically devoted to residues of specific veterinary drugs in food. It was also the seventh meeting of JECFA subsequent to th e completion of the workshop to update the principles 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. The outcomes of this workshop are incorporated in the Environmental Health Criteria, No. 240, publication Principles and methods for the risk assessment of chemicals in food, WHO, 2009. Specifically, the Committee continued to implement some of the more significant recommendations in th e workshop report, including the concept of using median residue values to estimate daily intakes of residues of veterinary drugs in food for chronic exposure intake estimates.

    The annual Joint Meeting of the FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues in Food and the Environment and the WHO Core Assessment Group on Pesticide Residues was held in Rome, Italy, from 11 to 20 September 2012. The FAO Panel of Experts had met in preparatory sessions from 6 to 10 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 hazards 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 (use of 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 use practices. The WHO Core Assessment Gr oup was responsible for reviewing toxicological and related data and for estimating, where possible and appropriate, acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) and acute reference doses (ARfDs) of the pesticides for humans. This report contains information on ADIs, ARfDs, 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 respectiv e agencies and other interested parties.
