Pesticide Data Sheets

Pesticide Data Sheets (PDSs) contain basic information for safe use of pesticides. The Pesticide Data Sheets were prepared by WHO in collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and give basic toxicological information on individual pesticides. Priority for development of PDSs was given to substances having a wide use in public health programmes and/or in agriculture, or having a high or an unusual toxicity record. The data sheets were prepared by scientific experts and peer reviewed. The comments of industry were provided through the industrial association formerly known as Groupement International des Associations Nationales de Fabricants de Produits Agrochemiques (GIFAP), now CropLife International. The data sheets may be revised from time to time as required.
