Координационный комитет Кодекса по Северной Америке и юго-западной части Тихого океана (CCNASWP), региональный координатор – Фиджи

В ходе 18-й сессии Комиссии “Кодекс Алиментариус”, состоявшейся в 1989 году, было принято решение об учреждении нового Координационного комитета по Северной Америке и Юго-Западному Тихоокеанскому региону, призванного объединить, по словам делегации Новой Зеландии, “дальние страны, у которых много общих интересов”.

Координационный комитет по Северной Америке и Юго-Западному Тихоокеанскому региону представляет невероятно разнообразный по своему составу регион, объединивший страны со зрелой экономикой, такие как США, Канада, Австралия и Новая Зеландия, и 10 малых островных государств, самым крупным из которых является Папуа-Новая Гвинея с населением более 7 млн человек, а самыми маленькими – Острова Кука и Науру с населением около 10 000 человек.

Штаб-квартирой регионального координатора стало Министерство сельского хозяйства Республики Фиджи.

Республика Фиджи готова к внедрению стандартов на национальном уровне и оказанию поддержки всем странам региона – особенно малым островным развивающимся государствам, – которая необходима для создания крепкой нормативной базы, способной обеспечить безопасность пищевых продуктов. Эти инициативы благотворно повлияют на общественное здравоохранение и позволят гарантировать безопасность и определенный уровень качества импортируемых пищевых продуктов и расширить доступ к международным рынкам.

Региональный координатор продолжит поддерживать работу над региональными стандартами и стремиться к расширению участия региона в работе Кодекса. Чтобы обеспечить более активное участие большего количества стран в работе Кодекса, необходимо продолжить наращивание потенциала на национальном уровне, усиливая роль национальных координаторов и контактных лиц.

Codex never stops / at the food hygiene committee physical is imitating virtual

Virtual meetings have given us the possibility to hop, skip and jump from one continent and one subject to another just with the right link and the copy and paste of a passcode. So it must have come as a shock to some delegates at the current session of the Codex Committee on Food Hygiene (CCFH) when they had to pack their bags in Rome on Friday as the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) ended and be 10 000 km away, bright [...]
