Excerpt
Bentazone was evaluated in the second edition of the WHO Guidelines for drinking-water quality. A guideline value for bentazone of 30 pgllitre was based on an AD1 of 0-0.1 mglkg of body weight established by JMPR in 1991 (based upon haematological effects observed in a 2-year dietary study in rats) assuming a 60-kg person consuming 2 litres of drinking-water per day and allocating 1% of the AD1 to drinking-water to allow for uncertainties regarding dietary exposure. Bentazone is moderately persistent in the environment and therefore has the potential of being present in food. In 1993, a manufacturer of bentazone (BASF, Germany) sent information to IPCS concerning the environmental behaviour of bentazone, which, in the opinion of BASF, would justify an allocation of 10% of the AD1 to drinking-water, rather than 1%. The Coordinating Committee for the Updating of WHO Guidelines for drinking-water quality therefore requested JMP to evaluate the environmental behaviour and persistence of bentazone so that a decision could be made concerning the per cent allocation of the AD1 to drinking-water.
