Progressing Global Standards during a global pandemic


The ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic has brought challenges to our way of living, interacting and working. The way we have worked internationally to date has been turned on its head. With the cancellation of almost all physical Codex meetings for 2020, it is now essential to look to new ways of continuing the work. The 79th session of the Executive Committee of the Codex Alimentarius Commission successfully met virtually between 13 and 20th July 202. In the current context, if we are to adopt Codex standards and initiate new work the Members of the Codex Alimentarius Commission also need to come together virtually.

Join the Codex Webinar on 28th July 2020 from 12 noon to 14h CET to hear about the plans for the 43rd session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, what is needed to make it happen and to have your questions answered.
