              - monographs and evaluations 
          Toxicological evaluations of pesticides, produced by the
           WHO/FAO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Residues JMPR , 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 JMPR makes its evaluations. These monographs are prepared
          by scientific experts and peer reviewed at the JMPR meetings.
