This volume contains toxicological monographs that were prepared by the 2012 Joint FAO/WHO Meeting on Pesticide Residues (JMPR), which met in Rome on 11-20 September 2012.

The monographs in this volume describe the toxicological evaluation of seven substances evaluated for the first time by the WHO Core Assessment Group (ametoctradin, chlorfenapyr, dinotefuran, fluxapyroxad, MCPA, picoxystrobin and sedaxane) and of four compounds (bentazone, fenpropathrin, fenvalerate and glufosinate-ammonium) re-evaluated within the periodic review program of the Codex Committee on Pesticide Residues (CCPR). The data summarized in the toxicological monographs served as the basis for the acceptable daily intakes and acute reference doses that were established by the Meeting.

This volume and previous volumes of JMPR toxicological evaluations contain information that is useful to companies that produce pesticides, government regulatory officers, industrial testing laboratories, toxicological laboratories and universities.
