The Codex Alimentarius, or the food code, addresses consumers, food producers and processors, national food control agencies and the international food trade. The Codex Alimentarius Commission was established in 1962 by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and by the World Health Organization (WHO). With more than 170 member countries, the Commission is a worldwide forum on food safety, consumer protection and fair practices in the food trade. The Codex Alimentarius is a continuously updated guide for governments and other interested parties in the regulatory framework needed for food control systems, food safety and consumer protection. The international standards contained in the Codex Alimentarius are recognized as benchmarks by the World Trade Organization (WTO). Over 400 standards, guidelines and codes of practice have been adopted to date on: food labelling and crop hygiene, commodities, food safety assessment for food derived from biotechnology, methods of analysis and sampling, food inspection and certification procedures.
