    Guidelines for personal protection when handling and applying pesticides
    International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management
    2020
    Also available in:

    These guidelines are intended to provide guidance on pesticide risk reduction through reduced exposure by effective personal protection with special attention to the use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). First, they provide technical information on personal protection and on the selection and use of PPE. Second, in line with the FAO/WHO International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management, they address policy issues and recommend measures to improve personal protection and specifically the use and availability of adequate quality and affordable PPE. They are primarily aimed at government authorities in charge of pesticide management and risk reduction, but are also considered useful to public and private sectors such as pesticide industry, non-governmental organisations (NGO) and other relevant entities. More specifically, these guidelines are targeted at stakeholders in low and middle income countries (LMICs) where it is acknowledged that there is limited legislation, compliance and enforcement, and PPE availability. These Guidelines were developed by the FAO/WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Management (JMPM) to provide guidance on provisions in the Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management that are related to personal protection of pesticide users. They are meant to enhance current national legislation and regulations on personal protection and personal protective equipment (PPE) or where there is none, to provide guidance. They reflect the FAO/WHO joint approach on pesticide management, thus addressing personal protection of both agricultural and public health operators/applicators, the latter being engaged in using insecticides for vector control.

    Guidelines for the registration of microbial, botanical and semiochemical pest control agents for plant protection and public health uses
    International Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management
    2017
    Also available in:

    These guidelines aim to provide practical guidance in the registration of microorganisms, botanicals and semiochemicals for plant protection and public health. The document focuses primarily on data requirements for registration and evaluation approaches. It provides national authorities with a framework for registering biopesticides, identifies aspects where they differ from chemical pesticides, and indicates where registration authorities should pay special attention. Specific chapters are ded icated to each type of biopesticide: microbials, botanicals and semiochemicals. These guidelines are complementary to the two technical Guidelines already published in the framework of the International FAO/WHO Code of Conduct on Pesticide Management: the Guidelines on registration of pesticides (2010) and the Guidelines on data requirements for the registration of pesticides (2014).
