The Committee therefore addressed itself to the task of revising the specifications and analytical methods for the pesticides currently being used in public health and of establishing specifications and analytical methods for newer pesticides,' that could prove safe and effective in vector control. In these deliberations account was taken of the recommendations made by the WHO Expert Committee on Insecticides in its nineteenth report and in the report of the Scientific Group on the Chemical and Biochemical Methodology for the Assessment of Hazards of Pesticides for Mam3
