Executive Summary

U.S. Codex office requesting comments on "Proposed Draft Working Principles for Risk Analysis" by Oct. 1. Redrafted document appears to take a step away from recognition of so-called "precautionary principle," or the application of precaution absent scientific data, within Codex itself, although it does not address the issue with regard to risk analysis guidance for governments. Document restates Codex Commission's position that when evidence of human health risk exists but scientific data are insufficient, the commission "should not proceed to elaborate a standard but should consider elaborating a related text, such as a code of practice...supported by the available scientific evidence." Redrafted document will be considered by Codex Committee on General Principles at its meeting in Paris April 15-19, 2002
