ISDI Positions for CAC43

The Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC) will be held virtually for the first time in Codex history. The virtual session of the Commission has been enabled by the agreement of the Codex membership to the suspension of Certain Rules of Procedure.

CAC43 discussions will take place from 24-26 September and on 12 October 2020, 12.00-15.00 CET, and the adoption of the report will be on 19 October 2020, 12.00-15.00 CET.
