The CCEURO Region - Regional Coordinator Kazakhstan

In 1964, at its second session, the Codex Alimentarius Commission established the Coordinating Committee for Europe to succeed the 'European Council of the Codex Alimentarius' and to replace the 'Advisory Group for Europe' set up at its first session in 1963.

The first meeting of the Coordinating Committee for Europe took place in July 1965 in Berne, Switzerland and was attended by 16 countries from the region.

 

As Kazakhstan begins its second term as coordinator issues such as food fraud and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) remain priorities. CCEURO will be seeking increased cooperation across sectors and countries to address food fraud and regional AMR policy.

Other critical food safety issues in the region include the use of new types of raw materials, new foods, and new technological processes which are increasingly being used by the food industry. Extreme weather events and the effects of climate change also have a direct impact on food security and food safety.

The main goals for Kazakhstan as coordinator are the sustainable participation of non-EU countries in the work of Codex and the consolidation and cohesion of CCEURO Members based on the region’s commitment to Codex core values.
