Codex Committee on Fish and Fishery Products
20/09/2021 - 20/10/2021 | by correspondence,


CAC43 (2020) approved the proposal that CCFFP be reactivated to work by correspondence in accordance with the “Procedure for the Inclusion of Additional Species in Codex Standards for Fish and Fishery Products” to evaluate if the Standard for Canned Sardines and Sardine-Type Products (CXS 94-1981) could be amended to include the fish species S. lemuru (Bali Sardinella) in the list of Sardinella species under section 2.1.

In December 2020, a Circular Letter (CL 2020/61/OCS REV-FFP) was issued requesting comments on the establishment of an Electronic Working Group (EWG) to evaluate a proposed amendment of the Standard for Canned Sardines and Sardine-Type Products (CXS 94-1981). Seventeen Member countries and the European Union provided comments in response to the Circular Letter. While the comments were generally positive to the establishment of the EWG, some requested further considerations regarding the chairing of the EWG, the Terms of Reference for the EWG, and selection of sardine species for sensory evaluation.

In agreement with the host country of CCFFP, Norway, the 35th Session of CCFFP will be convened in the second half of 2021 working by correspondence. The invitation to CCFFP35 and a draft agenda will be issued shortly.
