Standards and Policies

FAO supports and adheres to a number of conventions, agreements and treaties that relate to food and agriculture. We also work to assist Member Countries to develop and implement standards and guidelines, including the FAO/WHO managed Codex Alimentarius which protects consumer health and promotes fair practices in food trade.

In addition, we have built an extensive legislative database to give users quick access to national laws, regulations and policies on food, agriculture and natural resource management.
