Virtual CAC43 in the hands of Codex Members

Today Codex Members were invited to endorse the first virtual session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission.

With the support of the Codex Members, electronic working groups of subsidiary bodies are continuing their work and a [...]

食品法典(Codex)计划召开虚拟食典委大会

来自85个法典成员国和40个观察组织的代表在2020年7月28日举行了虚拟会议,这可能会被视为计划于2020年9月举行的食品法典委员会第四十三届会议的试运行。在执行委员会成功召开虚拟会议之后,食典委社群现在开始了解到虚拟食典委大会将需要什么、如何准备以及会得到什么。 食典委主席Guilherme da Costa(巴西)说道:“COVID-19大流行无疑对公共卫生和全球经济带来了划时代的挑战。”为了保证粮食安全,各国需要维持一个运作良好的食物供应体系,在这个体系下食品是安全的并可进行贸易。他说:“因此,食品法典在实现这一结合方面至关重要 — 没有食品安全和贸易,就没有食品保障可言。” 这是首次在线与大量成员国进行虚拟交流,尝试了使用问答和在线聊天等网络研讨会工具,交替进行有针对性的简短干预来与观众互动。世卫组织(WHO)和粮农组织(FAO)概述了其科学咨询计划如何适应当前的挑战,努力继续确保提供及时的科学咨询以支持食典标准。食典委秘书长Tom Heilandt主持了环绕虚拟工作的机遇和挑战议题的小组讨论。 继续食典标准方面的工作 — 学习、适应和发明 Heilandt说:“我们很遗憾,今年取消了这么多食典会议,但我们很快意识到,为了度过这段时期,我们必须发挥人类之所长:学习、适应和发明!实际上,如果没有这场危机,我们几乎不可能举行这么多场虚拟会议。如果食品法典要在疫情期间继续建立标准,那么最近召开的执行委员会会议就是前进道路的试验场。由于执行委员会虚拟会议取得了成功,我们现在准备举行第一届食典委虚拟会议,以采用在2019年下半年能够亲身召开会议的那些委员会提交的标准。”世界贸易组织参赞Christiane Wolff也分享了她在最近的世贸组织SPS委员会会议上管理虚拟会议的经验。Wolff表示:“我们确实需要投入力量,明确运作方式及相关步骤,以建立起成员国的信任,从而取得实质性的进展。” 粮农组织(FAO)和世卫组织已经确定,必须有三分之二的食典成员国(126个国家)达成协议,虚拟食典委大会才能够举行。目前正在对此进行验证,并将于8月底宣布结果。 观看网络研讨会: 在全球疫情中促进食品法典(Codex)标准   了解更多 为食品法典提供科学依据 — 适应当前情况 食典委执行委员会(CCEXEC)下属的食品法典和疫情小组委员会 — 挑战与机遇 食典委 Q & A from Codex Webinar on Progressing Global Standards during a Global Pandemic Top tips for participation in virtual meetings

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 [...]

食典委执行委员会:虚拟工作的先驱

食品法典委员会执行委员会第79届会议(CCEXEC79)建议,食品卫生和食品过敏原管理的关键法典文本,以及一系列地区性和世界范围的商品标准(包括卡瓦胡椒、辣椒酱、猕猴桃、大蒜和山药等)将提交下一次食典委会议——食典委第43届会议(CAC43)——采纳。如果食典成员同意目前由食典委秘书处与粮农组织(FAO)和世卫组织(WHO)共同制定中的模式,本届会议将于9月下旬以虚拟形式召开。 CCEXEC79是第一次完全在线召开的食典会议,会议为期三个半天,并就正在进行的工作向食典委提出明确建议,特别是要确保按时完成有关抗生素耐药性的重要文本。 食典委主席Guilherme da Costa(巴西)说:“食品法典大家庭正在证明自己是一个出色的队伍,我们必须尽最大努力进一步制定和传播食品法典标准,确保世界各地所有人的食品安全和质量。” 执行委员会历史性的第一次虚拟会议,2020年7月13日至20日 会议还讨论了如果2021年无法举行实体会议,各技术委员会继续制定食品法典标准的方式,这些委员会通常在10多个不同国家主办。 “因为我们不能亲自开会而继续推迟会议不是一个选择。”食典委秘书长Tom Heilandt说:“如果我们不能照常开展工作,我们需要了解在哪里投入。食典成员已表现出极大的决心和灵活性,以虚拟形式继续他们的工作。然而,他们所有人都受到了影响,许多通常从事食品法典问题工作的专家,被要求在其本国从事疫情相关的工作。我们也非常清楚,在虚拟工作时,会为能否获得口译服务感到担忧,而且某些国家存在技术挑战。” 澳大利亚的Usha Sriram Prasad说:“我认为对我们来讲这是一个机遇,因为食典委会成为开拓者,就什么适合我们的情况实际推荐或提出建议。我们应利用新颖和创新的方法继续努力完成现有的工作,并考虑各委员会的未来工作事项和我们在这次疫情中吸取的教训。” 基于科学的食品安全标准 人们已经把食品安全这个问题作为大流行病的潜在后果提出,食品安全突出了继续遵守基于科学的食品安全标准的重要性。Srirami-Prasad说:“食品法典的各委员会,包括食品卫生委员会(Food Hygiene Committee)和食品进出口检验和认证系统法典委员会(Codex Committee on Food Import and Export Inspection and Certification Systems)制定的原则和准则可以为支持在大流行期间和之后继续开展安全食品开放贸易提供指导。” 肯尼亚的Kimutai Maritim说:“当有可能举行实体会议时,我们真的希望再次继续实体会议。”他说,如果采取混合会议的方式,一些成员将亲自出席,另一些成员则会虚拟出席,这可能会引发签证问题。“因此,我们需要谨慎……建立共识,包容各方。” 改善业绩 埃及的Hanan Fouad Hamid Ibrahim Hashem说:“我们必须在食品法典范围内向前推进。我们需要提出一些新的机制,并使用技术以改善食品法典的业绩并保证其未来,同时也能够借鉴其他地方其他组织的经验。” 瓦努阿图的Timothy Tumukon说,食品法典信托基金(Codex Trust Fund)“应该扩大其重点和范围,以支持发展中国家,特别是在确保它们能够履行食品法典规定的参与义务方面。” 执行委员会很快将审查大流行对食品法典工作的影响,并就如何最好地在2020-2021年继续工作向食典委提供建议。负责领导这项工作的食典委(Codex Alimentarius Commission)副主席Mariam Eid(黎巴嫩)说:“我们将与食品法典全体成员就这一议题交换意见。我们将在9月初准备一份中期答复,我们将尽一切可能尝试与成员进行接触,以确保所有想法和关切都能在预计于2020年11月发布的最终报告中得以探讨。”   了解更多 关于推荐采用的标准和新的工作提案的完整清单,请当CCEXEC79报告在食品法典网站上发布后阅读该报告。 图片来源 © FAO。 主图为食典委秘书长Tom Heilandt(左)和食典委主席Guilherme da Costa。
