Electronic Working Groups

The list of Electronic Working Groups (EWG) provides basic information about the EWGs that each Codex Committee establishes when deciding to develop work between sessions.

Below is the list of the EWGs that have been created since the 39th session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission in 2016.

Use the search box for keywords or click on column headings to order the list. Click on the title of the EWG to view the details for a single group. To see the terms of reference and work schedule click on the invitation link and download the file.
