Pest and Pesticide Management


The Manual on the Development and Use of FAO and WHO Specifications for Chemical Pesticides contains detailed definitions and other background information to facilitate the development and use of the specifications.

Training Manual: The FAO/WHO Joint Meeting on Pesticide Specifications (JMPS) provides independent expert scientific assessment of the data supporting FAO and WHO specifications. The JMPS has developed standard procedures for assessment of pesticide data, including the determination of equivalence. The principles and practice of JMPS procedures are of utility to anyone involved in setting and ensuring standards for pesticide product quality, especially pesticide registration authorities.
