JECFA (Joint Expert Committee on Food Additives)
- monographs and evaluations
Toxicological evaluations of food additives and contaminants and
of residues of veterinary drugs in food, produced by the
Joint WHO/FAO Expert Committee on Food Additives JECFA , are
used by the Codex Alimentarius Commission and national
governments to set international food standards and safe
levels for protection of the consumer.
The monographs provide the toxicological information upon which
the JECFA makes its evaluations. These monographs are prepared
by scientific experts and peer reviewed at the JECFA meetings.
