Codex

Aug 24, 2020

The 43rd Session of CAC, originally planned for July in Rome, will now take place in cyberspace while respecting the values of inclusivity and transparency of Codex. Codex recently successfully concluded a virtual session of the Executive Committee which also established a sub-committee to address the ongoing challenges and opportunities for Codex during the pandemic. Convening a virtual session of the Commission is a critical step to ensuring work continuity in the current period. The Commission will discuss adoption of standards and new work proposals as well as take other decisions to ensure work can continue without losing too much momentum. “We will not rest after a successful implementation of the Commission but will work intensively with FAO, WHO, Members and Observers on systems and procedures that will make Codex more resilient to any crisis that prevents physical meetings in the future.” promised Heilandt.
