FOREWORD

IS0 (the International Organization for standardization) is a worldwide federation

of national standards institutes (IS0 member bodies). The work of developing
International Standards is carried out through IS0 technical committees. Every
member body interested in a subject for which a technical committee has been set

up has the right to be represented on that committee. International organizations,

governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

Draft International Standards adopted by the technical committees are circulated
to the member bodies for approval before their acceptance as International
Standards by the IS0 Council.

Prior to 1972, the results of the work of the technical committees were published

as IS0 Recommendations; these documents are in the process of being transformed
into International Standards. As part of this process, Technical Commitee
ISO/TC 81, Common names for pesticides, has reviewed IS0 Recommen-
dation R 257-1971 and found it technically suitable for transformation.
International Standard IS0 257 therefore replaces IS0 Recommen-
dation R 257-1971, to which it is technically identical.
IS0 Recommendation R 257 had been approved by the member bodies of the
following countries
Australia Germany Sw i tzerl and
Be I g i u m India Thailand
Canada I srael Turkey
Colombia Netherlands United Kingdom
Czechoslovakia Peru U.S.A.
Denmark Portugal U S.S. R .
South Africa, Rep. of Yugoslavia
Egypt, Arab Rep. of
Finland Spain
France Sweden
No member body had expressed disapproval of the Recommendation.
The member body of the following country disapproved the transformation of the
Recommendation into an International Standard :
