Secretariat seeks views on labeling exemptions in emergency situations

Mar 29, 2022

At its 46th session, the Codex Committee on Food Labeling (CCFL) discussed the possibility of future work to assist countries in establishing flexibilities in food labelling requirements when necessary to assure supply chain resilience during national or global public health emergencies, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The questions are intended to obtain input from the Codex membership and to share their experience, if any, with labelling flexibilities, and to guide and inform the types of labelling flexibilities to be considered as part of the future work. In addition, the feedback will help assess whether those labelling flexibilities are best provided for by amendments to the General Standard for the Labelling of Prepackaged Foods (GSLPF) (CXS 1-1985) or through a separate guideline document.

Deadline: 30 April 2022
