    1  References are to FAO/WHO publications (see list of references). Dates of publication refer to the first complete or completely revised
    monograph or to important mentions of the compound in a report. Where a monograph has been completely revised mention is not necessarily
    made of any earlier ones. Where the only date given is 1973, the compound was considered at the 1972 Joint Meeting for the first time.

    2  Unless otherwise indicated, the tolerances and practical limits should apply as soon as practicable after harvest to the raw agricultural
    products moving in commerce and prior to processing. For commodities entering international trade, tolerances are applicable, unless
    otherwise indicated, at the point of entry into a country or as soon as practicable thereafter. All levels refer to contents or samples
    representative of individual consignments or lots.

    Annex 1 (Cont'd.)

                                                                                                                                               

    3  Guideline levels are included to assist administering authorities, even though ADis have not been established for the individual
    products, or temporary ADIs established at an earlier date have been withdrawn. The levels recommended are those that need not be exceeded
    if good practices are followed. With regard to fumigants, they are intended to be applied at one of the stages indicated by f, g, or h in
    the knowledge that, when so applied, residues of unchanged fumigants in foods as offered for consumption would not exceed an amount close to
    the limit of determination by present analytical methods.

    # Level at or about the limit of determination.

    a Temporary: results of work to be made available not later than 30 June 1973.

    b Temporary: results of work to be made available not later than 30 June 1974.

    c Temporary: results of work to be made available not later than 30 June 1975.

    d Temporary: results of work to be made available not later than 30 June 1976.

    e Temporary: results of work to be made available not later than 30 June 1977.

    f To apply at point of entry into a country and, in the case of cereal for milling, if product has been freely exposed to air for a period
      of at least 24 hours after fumigation and before sampling.

    g To apply to milled cereal products to be subjected to baking or cooking.

    h To apply at point of retail sale or when offered for consumption.
