We present in this paper MPP01, a new solution for the planetary perturbations in the orbital motion of the Moon. Comparisons of the semi-analytical solution ELP2000-82B to numerical integrations of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and to LLR observations have shown deficiencies resulting mainly from planetary perturbations series established twenty years ago. The publication of a new planetary solution VSOP2000 and the progresses in numerical tools have contributed to improve the precision of the MPP01 solution. Comparisons between MPP01 and the ELP2000-82B solution for planetary perturbations show differences which are mainly due to the long periodic terms of the solution.
