  • IACM Statement on Codex GSFA

    IACM appreciates and supports that many developing countries, as well as countries that are revising their food law, look to Codex standards for guidance. However, the Codex process is very deliberate, and as such, not all additives, including many colors that are approved in countries such as the US and the EU have made it through the Codex step process for inclusion in the GSFA. Additionally, it was not the intent of the creators of the GSFA for it to be adopted as a positive list at this stage of development.
