Codex Committee on Food Labelling
Host Government: Canada
The Codex Committee on Food Labelling drafts provisions on labeling applicable to all foods; considers, amends, and endorses draft specific provisions on labeling prepared by the Codex Committees drafting standards, codes of practice, and guidelines; and studies specific labeling problems assigned by the Codex Alimentarius Commission. The Committee also studies problems associated with the advertisement of food with particular reference to claims and misleading descriptions.
The Committee held its 43rd Session in Ottawa, Canada from May 9-13, 2016. The U.S. Delegate’s Report of that Session is available.
The next session of the Codex Committee on Food Labelling will be held in approximately 18 months (tentatively, in October), with final arrangements subject to confirmation by the Canadian and Codex Secretariats.
