    Report Review of the working procedures of the joint FAO/WHO meeting on pesticide residues (JMPR) 2020

    No results found.

    The Joint Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR) is an expert ad hoc body administered jointly by the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Although the JMPR is an independent body that can respond to requests for advice from a variety of sources, its primary function is in the provision of scientific advice to the Codex Committee on Pesticide Residues (CCPR). This advice relates to pesticide residues, including recommendations for Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) and Acceptable Daily Intakes (ADIs).

    Supporting the Codex Alimentarius Commission in Setting Global Food Safety Standrds - GCP/GLO/798/CAN 2021

    The development of international food safety standards by Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) is an important global public good and core to the mission of both FAO and the World Health Organization (WHO). Their joint Food Safety Scientific Advice Programme is an essential pillar of the work of the CAC. Part of this programme includes hosting the three joint secretariats, namely the Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR), the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Meetings on Microbiological Risk Assessment (JEMRA), and the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Meetings on Nutrition (JEMNU). Given the different mandates and areas of specialization of FAO and WHO, their contributions to the joint programme are complementary in nature, and the ability to respond promptly and adequately to requests for scientific advice from the CAC depends on the availability of adequate resources in the programmes of both organizations. Against this background, the objective of the project was to support the joint FAO/WHO scientific advice programme , in order to assist the CAC in formulating health protective and trade inclusive food safety measures.

    The Codex Committee on Residue of Veterinary Drugs in Foods (CCRVDF) at its 11th Session recommended a Harmonization Meeting on residue definitions and other issues relating to the use of chemicals both as veterinary drugs and as pesticides because of the differences in the evaluation processes by Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) and Joint Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR) leading to different MRLs for the same chemical. The Meeting was held in Rome, Italy from 1-2 Feb ruary 1999. The main task of the meeting was to have informal exchange of information related to the same chemical which is of interest to both parties, to come up with only one recommendation on definitions of terms and MRL, used both as pesticide and as veterinary drug, among others. It was recommended that JMPR/JECFA should continue to hold ad hoc meetings to address issues of mutual interest and should consider the exchange of one panel member to facilitate the harmonization of MRLs and ri sk assessment for substances used as veterinary drugs and pesticides.
