Protecting health, facilitating trade

What is the Codex Alimentarius?

The Codex Alimentarius, or "Food Code" is a collection of standards, guidelines and codes of practice adopted by the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The Commission, also known as CAC, is the central part of the Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme and was established by FAO and WHO to protect consumer health and promote fair practices in food trade. It held its first meeting in 1963. [... more]

Why do we need Codex standards?

Codex standards ensure that food is safe and can be traded. The 188 Codex members have negotiated science based recommendations in all areas related to food safety and quality. Codex food safety texts are a reference in WTO trade disputes. [... more]

Animal Feed

Good animal feeding plays a vital role in animal health & welfare and in the production of safe and quality products of animal origin.

Antimicrobial resistance

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a major global threat of increasing concern to human and animal health. It also has implications for both food safety and food security and the economic well being of millions of farming households.

Biotechnology

While there is little controversy about many aspects of biotechnology and its application, genetically modified organisms (GMOs) are often the target of very intensive debate.

 

Contaminants

Contaminants are chemical substances that have not been intentionally added to food or feed and may pose a risk to animal and human health.

Nutrition & Labelling

The food label is one of the most important tools consumers can use to make informed choices about healthy and safe foods.

Pesticides

Pesticides with public health uses are intended to limit the potential for disease. By their nature, many pesticides may pose some risk to humans, animals, or the environment.

Scientific Approach

Codex committees, when developing standards, need to analyze risk. Independent scientific advice is provided to Codex by expert bodies organized by FAO/WHO. These bodies also give direct advice to Member Governments. [... more]

Understanding CodexFor more than five decades Codex texts have contributed immensely to the safety and quality of the food we eat. The Codex Alimentarius forms a global rule book that everyone in the food chain can follow, and it is at the same time a lifeline to those countries still working to strengthen their own national food safety control systems

This 4th edition of Understanding Codex will allow readers to have an informed view of the Codex Alimentarius Commission, how it works and what it has achieved. Interested readers to will quickly grasp the structure of the Codex system and gain an insight into the specialized technical committees and the detailed procedures and processes of Codex.

 

 

Whatever the future holds, food safety measures will need to be taken and when they are taken they will need to follow internationally agreed, harmonized standards born out of consensus and founded on sound science. That will be Codex.
