The FCC Forum

FCC Reference Standards banner

The FCC Forum is a free online resource that gives FCC users a chance to review and comment on proposed changes to the compendium. Changes and additions to the FCC generally are first proposed in the FCC Forum to invite public comment.

The FCC Forum ensures open and public participation when new content and revisions are added to the FCC. The comments and feedback from FCC subscribers and other interested parties in industry, academia, and elsewhere are critical to the transparent and scientifically rigorous process that culminates in the final approval by a group of independent, established scientific experts: the Food Ingredients Expert Committee.

The forum is a twice-a-year event, going live June 30 and December 31. Both FCC Forums have 90-day comment periods. The FCC Forum is free and open to everyone.
