Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR)

JMPR is an international expert scientific group administered jointly by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and WHO. JMPR meets regularly since 1963 to review residues and analytical aspects of the pesticides, estimate the maximum residue levels, review toxicological data and estimate acceptable daily intakes (ADIs) for humans of the pesticides under consideration.


The quality of scientific advice provided by the JMPR to the Codex Alimentarius Commission and to Member States relies upon the expertise and experience of the experts who prepare for and participate in the meetings.
