Codex Members updated on approach for second virtual Commission

Codex

Jul 26, 2021

A webinar held on 21 July 2021 gave countries an update on plans for the 44th Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC44) scheduled for November 2021 and the procedures currently being developed by the Codex Secretariat, together with FAO and WHO, that are expected to be presented to the Membership for endorsement similar to the approach taken for the first virtual CAC in 2020.

Speaking at the event attended by over 150 participants, Codex Secretary Tom Heilandt said that before holding a virtual CAC44, as agreed “we are going to put this in front of the membership - how we intend to hold the Commission and how we intend to run elections”. The path followed by FAO for their elections at the 42nd FAO conference may be the approach proposed to Codex Members in a communication likely to be distributed by 31 July 2021.
