CRN-I, the international subsidiary of the Council for Responsible Nutrition (Washington, DC), will host a scientific symposium in Bad Soden, Germany on November 12, 2011.

Called “Nutrition Issues in Codex: Health Claims and Nutrient Reference Values,” the symposium will provide scientific discussions on nutrition issues related to the Codex Alimentarius. Discussions will be led by policymakers, nutrition scientists, and international regulators.

“Our expert presenters will take an in-depth look at the issue of scientific standards for label claims and Codex guidelines-a topic we opened up at last year’s symposium in Geneva,” says John Hathcock, PhD, senior vice president of scientific and international affairs at CRN-I. “In addition, we’re going to begin to address the questions surrounding Nutrient Reference Values and the implications of how they’re defined by Codex.”
