Codex Committee on General Principles
Host Government: France
The Codex Committee on General Principles (CCGP) deals with rules and procedures referred to it by the Codex Alimentarius Commission including the establishment of principles which define the purpose and scope of the Codex Alimentarius and the nature of Codex standards. The development of mechanisms to address any economic impact statements is also the responsibility of the CCGP.
The U.S. Delegation is headed by a member of the U.S. Codex Steering Committee.
The 27th Session of the Committee will be held in 2012, unless actions taken by the CAC establish a need for a session in 2011.
