*NEW FORMAT FOR COMMENTS ON CODEX DOCUMENTS*
The Codex Secretariat has informed that comments should follow the guidance in the attached documents to rationalize and speed up the translation and compilation of comments.
Considering that CCLAC has often made claims on these issues, we would appreciate it if all the region could take these guidance into account.
