    A regional training workshop entitled “Enhancing Effective Participation in Codex Activities in ASEAN Countries” as a part of the FAO regional project “Support for Capacity Building for International Food Safety Standard Development and Implementation in ASEAN Countries (GCP/RAS/295/JPN)” was held on 9-11 January 2017 in Bangkok, Thailand. The five-year regional project was launched in February 2016 with financial assistance from the Government of Japan. The project has already carried out significant activities, including the organizing of two national training courses in Lao PDR and Myanmar, and the identification of the current conditions/baselines and challenges on the implementation of international/national standards in each ASEAN country. Main objectives of the regional workshop were to provide participants with: 1) an enhanced understanding of the impact of Codex standards on international trade, structure and function of Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC), up-to-date information of recent Codex meetings, food safety risk analysis and risk assessment including the role of scientific expert bodies such as JECFA, JMPR and JEMRA, 2) An opportunity to share knowledge and experience on current national Codex activities in ASEAN countries, and 3) Training on development of regional/national positions through mock sessions to enhance participants’ capacity to contribute effectively to Codex work. 29 participants from ten ASEAN countries from the agencies mainly responsible for food safety control with regard to standard development and implementation as well as the work of the Codex have attended. Many resource persons from Japan, Thailand, ASEAN Secretariat, Food Industry Asia, AETS and FAORAP contributed to the workshop.
