Don’t miss our experts in a live webinar as they provide updates on the Codex Alimentarius requirements and cover comparisons of the current (2020) version against the previous version.


May 25, 2021, 14:00


May 25, 2021, 15:00



This is a discussion on the WHO/FAO Codex Alimentarius Commission International Food Standards, 1-1969, rev. 2020. We will focus on the changes from the previous version (2003), such as on General Principles, Management Commitment to Food Safety, Roles of Competent Authorities, Food Business Operators and Consumers; as well as highlight the key requirements of the different sections of the Standard. 

For those intending to gain certification to GMP and/or HACCP and any of the GFSI-endorsed standards, i.e. BRCGS, IFS, SQF and FSSC - the Codex guidance is a useful basis for setting fundamental food safety controls that are recognized by the GFSI, as well as being accepted by local and foreign markets.


The objective of this webinar is to provide updates on the Codex Alimentarius requirements. We will also cover comparisons of the current (2020) version against the previous version. This Standard is the foundation of GMP-HACCP implementation and impacts food safety program implementation to meet both customer expectations and regulatory compliance.
