Excerpt: 1. In just over two years time, in November 2001, the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) will celebrate 40 years since its establishment by FAO Conference. The next session of the Commission, also in 2001, will coincide with the tenth anniversary of the March 1991 Conference on Food Standards, Chemicals in Food and Food Trade. It will be the first session of the Commission in the new Century; the new Millennium. 2. It is timely to reflect on the work of the Commission, how it has responded to the challenges set out by the 1991 Conference, and where it is going in the future. 3. The CAC is charged with implementing the Joint FAO/WHO Food Standards Programme. The primary objectives of the Programme are, and will continue to be, protecting the health of the consumer and ensuring fair practices in the food trade by the elaboration of internationally acceptable standards for food. ?Standards? are meant in the broadest sense: - specific standards for commodities; general standards for labelling, additives, hygiene, contaminants, etc. for application across a wide range of foods; maximum limits (MRLs) for residues of pesticides and veterinary chemicals; and codes of good manufacturing and hygienic practice.
