    THE MONOGRAPHS

    Issued jointly by FAO and WHO

    The content of this document is the result of the deliberations of the

    Committee on Pesticide Residues, which met in Geneva, 9-16 December,

    METHYL BROMIDE

    This pesticide has been previously evaluated (FAO/WHO, 1967, 1968).
    However, no recommendations for acceptable daily intake or tolerances
    were made. Since that time additional studies have raised further
    problems which are outlined in the monograph addendum on carbon
    disulfide.

    Further work or information

    Required (before acceptable daily intakes, tolerances or negligible
    residue levels can be established)

    Information on the level of residues that may persist in the unchanged
    form after processing treated food products.
