    The CODEX magazine reviews a year in the life of the international food safety standard setting body the Codex Alimentarius Commission. With testimony from the experts who attend technical meetings to set standards and the countries that host those committees, CODEX in 2022 tells the story of another year where operations have been virtual. Contributions from the parent organizations FAO and WHO combine with insight from Observer organizations and those who operate from within the Codex Secretariat to ensure that once again the Commission will be adopting over 20 new texts this year to ensure food is safe and can be traded fairly.

    The FAO/WHO Codex Alimentarius Commission is the unique United Nations body responsible for establishing international food standards aimed at protecting the health of consumers and ensuring fair practices in the food trade. The food standards, codes of practice and other guidelines and recommendations adopted by the Commission form the Codex Alimentarius: the international food code. The Codex Alimentarius Commission envisages a world afforded the highest attainable levels of consumer protectio n, including food safety and quality. The 28th Session, held from 4 to 9 July 2005, adopted a number of new or revised standards and related texts as well as several amendments to the Rules of Procedure, pursuant to the process of reform of its structure and procedures to meet the increased expectations of governments and stakeholders for increased efficiency and relevance of its work. This is the report of that meeting, adopted by the Commission itself on its closing day.
