    Compendium of Codex standards
    Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a serious global health threat and a food safety issue of primary concern. Governments and international organizations have recognized that the issue has to be approached in a multidisciplinary manner, addressing animal, plant and human health as well as the environment under the One Health approach. This publication brings together the three Codex texts, two guidelines and a code of practice, that will support governments in designing and running a successful strategy to tackle foodborne AMR.

    Codex A world full of standards
    Keeping pace with technological innovation
    This publication showcases the steps the Codex Alimentarius has taken from July 2017 (CAC40) to July 2018 (CAC41) on the road to safe and quality food for everyone. Over the course of the year, Codex committees met to discuss updates to the international food standards, guidelines and codes of practice. The “food code’s” governing body, known as the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC), makes decisions on the committees’ proposals during its annual meeting in July. Through an array of magazine-style articles, “Codex" shares the viewpoints and contributions of the diverse partnership, which includes 188 Member Countries and the European Union as well as over 200 Observers.
