    PESTICIDE RESIDUES IN FOOD - 1980


    Sponsored jointly by FAO and WHO






    EVALUATIONS 1980





    Joint meeting of the
    FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues
    in Food and the Environment
    and the
    WHO Expert Group on Pesticide Residues
    Rome, 6-15 October 1980




    ANNEX I

    ACCEPTABLE DAILY INTAKES, RESIDUE LIMITS AND GUIDELINE LEVELS
    RECOMMENDED AT THE 1980 MEETING

    These figures are additional to, or amend, those recorded in Annexes
    of the reports of earlier meetings.  Limits recommended at meetings
    from 1965 - 1977 inclusive are summarized in document FAO/WHO 1978c.

    This Table includes maximum acceptable daily intakes (ADIs), maximum
    residue limits (MRLs), extraneous residue limits (ERLs) and guideline
    levels (GLs).  These terms are defined in Annex 3 of the report of the
    1975 meeting.  Some ADIs and MRLs are temporary: in these cases the
    year in which further data are required is specified in parenthesis.
    ERLs are identified by the symbol (E) after the limit.  Part 1 lists
    ADIs, MRLs and ERLs.  Part 2 lists GLs.

    New, as distinct from amended, recommendations are identified by the
    symbol * before the commodity or before the ADI.  Residue levels at
    or about the limit of determination are followed by the symbol **.
    Certain corrections of previous publications are included.
