Codex Trust Fund

Highlights

The call for Round 2 applications for support from the FAO/WHO Codex Trust Fund is now closed with 32 applications submitted before 16 October 2017. Applications are under evaluation by the Technical Review Group (TRG). Countries will be advised on their application in due course.

The Codex Trust Fund is inviting eligible countries to join its community to share knowledge and tips on the Trust Fund with others. Create your account, access the community site, join and start the discussion.

The Codex Trust Fund supports countries to build strong, solid and sustainable national capacity to engage in Codex. Applications from eligible countries or groups of countries are assessed through a fair and transparent process and successful applications receive support for up to three years.

"Our vision for the new Codex Trust Fund is to have all countries engaging fully and effectively in Codex and reaping the benefits of Codex standards by 2027", Dr Kazuaki Miygishima, Director, Department of Food Safety and Zoonoses, World Health Organization.
