Abstract(English): This meeting, held in Berlin, Germany, on 18-27 September 2018, reviewed pesticide use patterns and good agricultural practices, data on the chemistry and composition of the pesticides, and methods of analysis for pesticide residues and recommended maximum residue levels. The report also contains information on acceptable daily intakes and acute reference doses of pesticides for humans, and general principles for the evaluation of pesticides. The recommendations of the joint FAO and WHO meeting, including further research and information, are proposed for use by Member governments of the respective agencies and other interested parties. The meeting was held in pursuance of recommendations, made by previous meetings and accepted by the governing bodies of FAO and WHO, that studies should be undertaken jointly by experts to evaluate possible hazards to humans arising from the occurrence of pesticide residues in foods.
