Foodborne Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

South Korea

Feb 23, 2022

A timely new compendium of Codex texts to support countries in the fight against foodborne antimicrobial resistance (AMR) was published on Thursday 17 February 2022 at a launch event of a new FAO project, sponsored by the Republic of Korea, that will support implementation of Codex guidance in this field.

Countries have different approaches and interests when it comes to use of antimicrobials for animal and plant health and the potential for AMR carry-over or transmission into foods. The overarching international guidance provided by Codex will allow countries to set their own priorities and needs within a harmonized framework.

Speaking at the project launch event, Sarah Cahill of the Codex Secretariat said: “These inter-related texts bring together more than a decade of Codex work on AMR and illustrate how fundamental approaches like Risk Analysis and One Health are to addressing complex issues such as that posed by foodborne antimicrobial resistance.”
