|Abstract:||The role of Asian countries in international food trade continues to grow. This has led to the realization among the Member States of the World Health Organization's Regional Office for South-East Asia [WHO SEARO] of the importance of Codex practices and standards in protecting the health of the populations in the Member States while ensuring fair practices on the food trade. This report is from a regional workshop on capacity building of National Codex Committees in the Member States of South-East Asia, jointly organized by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC), the Codex Trust Fund and WHO-SEARO. The report provides information on the overall principles and practices of the Codex Alimentarius and their applications in the Member States; identifies the major determinants and successful applications of Codex standards and principles at the country level, effective utilization of the Codex Trust Fund and efficient communication strategies in Codex matters.|
