ويقع مقر المنسق الإقليمي الحالي للشرق الأدنى في الهيئة العامة السعودية للغذاء والدواء في الرياض.

تشمل أهداف المنسق في قيادة المنطقة في هيئة الدستور الغذائي تطوير وتعزيز جهات الاتصال لهيئة الدستور الغذائي واللجان الوطنية للهيئة، فضلا عن تحسين الاتصال والتنسيق بين أعضاء لجنة التنسيق لهيئة الدستور الغذائي في الشرق الأدنى، مع المناطق الأخرى ومع أمانة هيئة الدستور الغذائي.
