Stephen Mambu, Codex Contact Point for Liberia said, “Liberia now has a national standardization body known as the Liberia Standards Authority (LiSA). As part of this legislation, the Codex Contact Point is to be housed within LiSA. This is a milestone for standardization in Liberia that will definitely impact Codex and food safety in Liberia.”
