Executive Committee of the Codex Alimentarius Commission
28/10/2021 - 05/11/2021 | Virtual,


CAC43 (2020) concluded that while many Codex meetings had to be postponed in 2020, this could not continue in 2021 and that CCEXEC80 and CCEXEC81 may be held virtually if physical meetings were not possible. The Codex Secretariat in consultation with FAO and WHO has determined that it is not possible to plan CCEXEC81 as a physical session. The meeting will therefore take place virtually in October - November 2021.

CCEXEC81 will meet virtually for six three-hour sessions, one session per day on 28 and 29 October and 1, 2 and 3 November to discuss the items on the agenda, and a sixth session on 5 November to adopt the report. Each session will take place from 12:00 (noon) to 15:00 h CET.

The Session will begin at midday (CET) on Thursday 28 October 2021.
The Session will be conducted in Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Russian and Spanish.


The Codex Secretariat has prepared guidance for members and observers to facilitate participation in virtual meetings. Please visit the "Information for Delegates" webpage and the guidance for participants to virtual meetings available in English, French, Spanish, Arabic, Chinese and Russian.


Please note that there will be no distribution of working documents through the Codex mailing list (Codex-L). Only the invitation and the provisional agenda will be distributed to Members. All working documents, and any subsequent new documents not referenced on this Provisional Agenda, including any other information for delegates, will be published on the Codex website as they become available.
