    EVALUATIONS 1982





    Data and recommendations of the joint meeting
    of the FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Residues
    in Food and the Environment and the
    WHO Expert Group on Pesticide Residues

    ANNEX I

    ACCEPTABLE DAILY INTAKES, MAXIMUM RESIDUE LIMITS AND GUIDELINE
    LEVELS PROPOSED AT THE 1982 MEETING

         These figures are additional to, or amend, those recorded in
    Annexes of the reports of earlier meetings. Limits recommended at
    meetings from 1965-1977 inclusive are summarized in document FAO/WHO
    1978c.

         This table includes maximum acceptable daily intake (ADIs),
    maximum residue limits (MRLs) and guideline levels (GLs). These terms
    are defined in Annex III of the Report of the 1975 Meeting. Part 1
    lists ADIs and MRLs. Some ADIs and MRLs are temporary; in these cases
    the year in which further data are required is specified in
    parenthesis below the ADI. Part 2 lists GLs.

         New, as distinct from amended, recommendations are identified by
    the symbol * before the commodity or before the ADI. Residue levels
    at or about the limit of determination are followed by the symbol
    **.

         Amended recommendations are followed by the previous
    recommendation in parenthesis.
