    This volume contains monographs prepared at the eighty-fifth meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which met in Geneva, Switzerland, from 17 to 26 October 2017. The toxicological monographs in this volume summarize data on the veterinary drug residues that were evaluated toxicologically by the Committee: amoxicillin, ampicillin, ethion, flumethrin, halquinol and lufenuron. Annexed to the report is a summary of the Committee’s recommendations on these and other drugs discussed at the eighty-fifth meeting, including acceptable daily intakes (ADIs), acute reference doses (ARfDs) andproposed maximum residue limits (MRLs). This volume and others in the WHO Food Additives Series contain information that is useful to those who produce and use food additives and veterinary drugs and those involved with controlling contaminants in food, government and food regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories and universities.

    This document contains monographs on residue evaluations of certain veterinary drugs, prepared at the seventieh meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA), which was held in Geneva, Switzerland from 21 to 29 October 2008. Three substances were evaluated for the first time for the animal species concerned, avilamycin, monensin and narasin. Four substances were reassessed, dexamethasone, tilmicosin, triclabendazole and tylosin. The residue monographs provide informatio n on chemical identity and properties of the compounds, pharmacokinetics and metabolism, residue depletion studies and analytical methods validated and used for the detection and quantification of the compounds. In addition to these monographs, this document includes the considerations and recommendations developed by the Committee for residues of veterinary drugs in honey and possible approaches to derive MRLs for this commodity; and a monograph on residues in aquatic species of and an estimata tion of human dietary exposure to malachite green (an antimicrobial agent and contamimant). This publication and other documents produced by JECFA contain information that is useful to those who work with or are involved with recommending or controlling maximum residue limits for veterinary drugs in foods.

    A meeting of the Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) was held in Geneva, Switzerland, from 21 to 29 October 2008. The purpose of the meeting was to evaluate residues of certain veterinary drugs in food. The present meeting was the seventieth in a series of similar meetings and was the eighteenth meeting of JECFA convened to consider residues of veterinary drugs in food. The tasks before 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 certain drugs when they are administered to food-producing animals in accordance with good practice in the use of veterinary drugs.
