Chemical hazards in drinking-water - carbaryl
Rolling revision of the WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality
Carbaryl is included in the plan of work of the rolling revision of the WHO Guidelines for Drinking-water Quality.
Carbaryl has not been evaluated in the GDWQ. The GDWQ FTF meeting (Geneva, 2003) recommended that a background document on carbaryl be prepared based on the 2001 JMPR report. The JMPR report on carbaryl was completed in 2001.
Short background document for second addendum
Progress to date
The GDWQ WG meeting (Geneva, 2004) and the GDWQ WG meeting (Geneva, 2005) agreed to review the occurrence data for carbaryl in order to determine whether it satisfies the criteria for inclusion and should be added to the rolling revision. The GDWQ WG meeting (Geneva, 2006) agreed that a short background document based on the 2001 JMPR report should be prepared for the second addendum.'
The background document and summary statement are now available.
