Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee (MBTOC)

The Methyl Bromide Technical Options Committee (MBTOC) is one of the five Technical Options Committees of the Technology and Economic Assessment Panel.  MBTOC assesses the use and phase-out of methyl bromide as fumigants in agriculture and in structures and commodities: for some of those applications there are no suitable alternatives. Quarantine and pre-shipment uses of methyl bromide are exempted from control measures but the Committee monitors those uses.
