In recognition of the growing problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR), its increasing threat to human, animal and plant health, and the need for a One Health approach to address this issue, the 39th Session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) agreed it was important for the food safety community to play its part and re-established the ad hoc Codex Intergovernmental Task Force on Antimicrobial Resistance (TFAMR) with the objectives of the Task Force revising the current Codex Code of Practice to Minimise and Contain Antimicrobial Resistance (CAC/RCP 61-2005) and to developing new guidance on surveillance programmes relevant to foodborne AMR. Responding to the request from the CAC and the Task Force to provide scientific advice in the areas of crops, environment and biocides, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Health Organization (WHO) convened, in collaboration with the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), a joint “FAO/WHO expert meeting on foodborne antimicrobial resistance: role of environment, crops and biocides” on 11-15 June 2018 in Rome, Italy.
