Can anyone please link me to the latest official document of Codex? It's not a matter of a simple google search since there's so many documents out there on Codex by FAO by CAC... that I just can't tell which one is the official release.

 

thank you.

I was always under the impression you had to pay for Codex Alimentarius. That would be great if I could just download a PDF. I'll be watching this thread.

go to codex and look at the publications - usually a large list in downloadable pdf...if you are looking for a specific standard such as food hygiene guidelines - search for the title to see if it exists.

Most standards are for processed products - i.e. grading of canned peaches; cleanliness of spices etc

Hope this helps

Also look up codes of practice - another large list of guidelines in pdf - they will indicate what year the publication has been updated

thank you.

 

afaik Codex's Primary, general, (traditional) haccp document is the one included as a section in their Hygiene publication (now published through various revisions) although many other side-related documents, eg on seafood, Validation (eg Post 3) have also been issued.

 

For above Haccp Presentation, afaik, latest edition is  -

 

Attached File  Codex food hygiene 2009 4th ed.pdf   632.64KB   208 downloads

 

(feel free to correct me if you can find a later edition since I haven't done a search)


Kind Regards,

Charles is correct that the 4th Edition (2009) is the current version of the classic Basic Texts. Available for free from the FAO's own website here: http://www.fao.org/p...5-349f7499bb0f/

The attached is the latest version of the CAC/RCP 1-1969 "General Principles of Food Hygiene" document.

 

In general the various Codex standards, guidelines, and codes of practice are all available at no cost direct from the FAO/Codex website - they want people to use them!

Hello,

there was also a review of the basic HACCP in 2015:

best regards,

Just for clarity, the HACCP Annex within the attachment in Post 7 is virtually identical to the HACCP Annex in the attachment in Post 6.

(theoretically they should be 100% identical [see the annotation in 2009 publication] but a few editorial format changes appear to have slipped into the later presentation)

 

@Leila-  Thks for interesting link. The most significant part of document appeared to me to be the closing paragraph -

 

9. The proposed time-line for completion of the new work, including the start date, the proposed date for adoption at Step 5, and the proposed date for adoption by the Commission.

Proposed time line: The work conducted by the eWG since the 46th  session of CCFH allowed to identify the main items that need improvement and to provide alternative ways forward. A five-year timeline is proposed for  the  completion  of  the  revision  of  the  General  Principles  of  Food  Hygiene  (CAC/RCP  1-1969)  and  its HACCP Annex. A proposed revised document would be ready for discussion at Step 3 by the CCFH in 2016, with a proposed date for adoption at Step 5 in 2018 and adoption at Step 8 in 2019.

 

 

So, seemingly, there should be some more ?

 

PS - Various aspects of Codex HACCP have been critically discussed elsewhere on this Forum. The transition from Application of Principle 6 to 7 (ie hazard analysis > CCPs) is patently (probably deliberately) "blurred" over. The consequence has been to generate Procedural differences  for establishing CCPs. Might also note that the Codex  terminology "identified hazard"  is nowadays probably more familiar as "significant hazard".

 

IMO the (originally) parallel  NACMCF version of HACCP is equally useful for the understanding of various fundamental HACCP concepts, especially Prerequisite programs and the "transition"  noted above.
 


Kind Regards,

 

Charles.C
