The U.S. Codex Office is using the Codex Online Registration System (ORS) to register delegates for the CCFH meeting, via the link here below.

Please note that the invitation to CCFH49 issued by FAO and WHO requests that delegates register by October 13, 2017.

Login and password for the online registration have been provided to all Codex Contact Points and Contact Point of Observers Organizations. If the login and password have not been received, please contact codex@fao.org.

We would encourage all delegates who expect to attend CCFH49 to register well in advance to ensure that appropriate seating arrangements will be available for them at the meeting.

Please note that the CCFH meeting registration is a separate process from the hotel reservations for sleeping accommodations at the Intercontinental Hotel (please see section CCFH49 Venue Hotel in the Information for Delegates here below).

Those who will require a visa to enter the United States are strongly encouraged to begin the visa application process as soon as possible.
