FCC Forum is the process for new and revised Food Chemicals Codex public review and comment.
All proposed standards and revisions for the FCC are first posted in the free, online FCC Forum for a 90-day public comment period. Once revisions or new standards are approved by the Food Ingredients Expert Committee they are published in the FCC main edition or its Supplements. The table below shows applicable FCC Forum comment periods, targeted publications, and publication dates.
