Webinar on Codex texts for the Latin American and the Caribbean region / 7 December 10.00 (GMT-5)


To strengthen national food safety systems and promote the application of Codex standards, there will be a webinar on basic Codex texts on 7 December 2022, 10.00–12.00 (GMT-5). This is part of the webinar series for capacity building in the Latin American and Caribbean region.

“For more than five decades Codex texts have contributed immensely to the safety and quality of the food we eat. Codex standards are used as a benchmark in international trade agreements, ensuring that trade can flow globally but not at the cost of health risks to consumers. This webinar will help participants to learn more about the standards, guidelines, codes of practice, and all the important texts of the Codex Alimentarius Commission,” said Giuseppe Di Chiera from the Codex Secretariat.

After the presentation, there will be open discussion and Q&A session. The webinar will be held in Spanish and English, recordings will be also available on the event website.

As part of the FAO project “Action to support implementation of Codex AMR Texts (ACT)”, a series of virtual seminars are held in 2022-2025. The webinars are organized by the Phyto and Zoosanitary Regulation and Control Agency of Ecuador (AGROCALIDAD), as the base of the FAO/WHO Coordinating Committee for Latin America and the Caribbean (CCLAC), and the FAO Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean (FAO RLC).
