    Explanatory Notes

    1.  Reference entries in second column are to first complete or completely revised monograph. Succeeding date references are to
        addenda to first reference. Where a monograph has been completely revised no mention is made of any earlier obsolete ones. The
        complete list of references is contained on p. 237

    2.  Compounds with 'FAO/WHO, 1970' publication references, if not accompanied by references to earlier monographs, were considered
        at the 1969 meeting for the first time.

    3.  Entries with heavy underlines relate to additions or to changes made at the 1969 meeting concerning compounds considered at
        previous meetings.

    4.  The suffixes a*, b*, c*, and d* each indicate that the particular entry is 'Temporary'. The results of work required should be
        made available respectively:

        Not later than 30 June 1970 for 'a*' entries
        Not later than 30 June 1971 for 'b*' entries
        Not later than 30 June 1972 for 'c*' entries
        Not later than 30 June 1973 for 'd*' entries

    5.  Unless otherwise indicated, the tolerances and practical residue limits should apply as soon as practicable after harvest, to the
        raw agricultural products moving in commerce and prior to processing.

    APPENDIX I (cont'd)

    6.  With commodities entering international trade the tolerances are applicable at the point of entry into a country or as soon as
        practicable thereafter.
