March 21, 2012

The report focuses on the symposium’s discussion of the role of Codex Alimentarius in setting global nutrition policy.

A report from the annual scientific symposium held in November in Germany by the Council for Responsible Nutrition-International (CRN-I), the international arm of association the Council for Responsible Nutrition (Washington, DC), has been published in peer-reviewed scientific journal the European Journal of Nutrition.

Titled “Nutrition Issues in Codex: Health Claims, Nutrient Reference Values, and WTO Agreements,” the report focuses on the symposium’s discussion of the role of Codex Alimentarius in setting global nutrition policy. A link to purchase the full article is on CRN-I's website.

“It is a testament to the level and quality of discourse that takes place at the event itself that the conference report has now been selected for publication two years in a row in highly regarded, peer-reviewed journals,” said John Hathcock, PhD, CRN’s senior vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs.

A report from CRN-I’s 2010 scientific symposium was published in Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology.

CRN-I’s next scientific symposium will take place in Germany December 1, 2012, and a fourth symposium is being planned for spring 2013.
