This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet
Strengthening CFSAN's participation and leadership in the Codex Alimentarius Commission, including the Nutrition & Foods for Special Dietary Uses committee, is one of many priorities announced in the center's "Draft Affirmative Agenda for International Activities" for 2000-2002. A Sept. 17 Federal Register notice provides a 45-day written comment period on the agenda, which also includes inspecting high-risk foreign food production facilities for compliance with FDA regulations on infant formula and investigating alternatives for animal testing of foods and cosmetics. The draft agenda is available on CFSAN's Web site. Developing a clearer international agenda was one of the center's "A-List" priorities for 1999 (1"The Tan Sheet" Feb. 1, p. 9)
