FAO Panel of Experts on Pesticide Specifications

The "Joint Meeting on Pesticide Specifications" (JMPS) is an expert ad hoc body administered jointly by FAO and WHO, composed of scientists collectively possessing expert knowledge of the development of specifications. Their opinions and recommendations to FAO/WHO are provided in their individual expert capacities, not as representatives of their countries or organizations.

The current JMPS comprises the experts appointed by FAO and WHO. Experts are placed on it for an initial period of five years or until their terms on the Panel of Experts expire, and new experts are added on the basis of consideration of new applications.
