Suggestions regarding the

Functions and Composition of the proposed Group on Insecticides

The Malaria Committee, at its Washington session, recommended

"that an Expert Sub-Committee on Insecticides be set up to specify international standards for insecticides and their formulation, to stimulate the development of standard spraying equipment on a regional basis, and to deal with all other questions relating to the proper use of insecticides"

(document S.19, page 47, paragraph 3 (b)).

Prior to this, the Expert Committee on Quarantine (October 1947), (Off .Rec. 8, page 29 )} the Expert Committee on International Epidemic Control (April 1948) (document S.25, page 2), and the

Joint Study Group on Plague and Typhus (April 1948), (document S.22, page 3) bad stressed their own need for expert advice on insecticides and their use.

It is suggested that a single body might be set up to meet all the needs of WHO with regard to special knowledge concerning insecticides; i.e. to furnish advice on insecticides to all WHO Committees requiring such advice, rather than form a sub-committee which would properly serve one committee only.

It is further suggested that the main object of the Committee should be to make existing knowledge available, rather than to undertake research.

In view of the diversity of application of insecticides, the following set-up is proposed for consideration:


A/Prog/64 page 2' ;

(1) a small committee of three experts, with "broad knowledge of insecticides and their uses, including representatives of the more important existing 'national insecticides committees;

(2) a panel of experts possessing Specialized knowledge of the following subjects - two or three expert's for each subject:

a) chemistry of insecticides, b ) disinsectization of aircraft,

c) mechanical devices for such disinsectization, d) other dusting and vaporization devices,

e) airplane dusting of marshes

f) insecticide application in houses^ ' •

The members of the panel would be nominated in the same way as those of the nucleus committee by the Director-General in - agreement with the Chairman of the Executive Board,

The same authority would decide which members of the panel would be convened together with the nucleus committee for the

consideration of one particular subject.

It is proposed that, as a general rule, the insecticides committee should be convened at the same time as a committee requiring its advice, i«e. Quarantine, Malaria, etc.

The first meeting of the committee could be confined to the nucleus of three, who would submit proposals for the composition of the panel. The second meeting could include both the members forming the nucleus and two or three experts from the panel.

The cost of the initial meeting can be assessed at 0 2,000, other meetings at 0 5 > 0 0 0 , — ,
