In order to provide guidance on acceptable levels of exposure, WHO organized a series of expert meetings to determine the tolerable levels of dioxins to which humans may be exposed throughout their lives without harmful effects. In 2001, the Joint FAO / WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (JECFA) carried out a comprehensive updated risk assessment for PCDDs, PCDFs and "dioxin-like" PCBs.
