The report stresses the need to regard effective pesticides as a limited resource that must be conserved through careful planning and management based on the best scientific knowledge. She noted that the Expert Committee had last considered the chemistry and specifications of pesticides in 1989 1. Analytical methods and quality control of pesticides in developing countries are discussed, and the Committee's recommendations for specifications for various types of pesticides are presented.
