The Inter-American Network of Food Analysis Laboratories (INFAL) invites all its members to the 1st Extraordinary Assembly to be held the 20th, 21st and 22nd October, 2020, virtually. The Assembly is the highest authority of the INFAL, and this year it will meet virtually due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. During this Assembly the latest revision of the Statute will be approved and the workplan for the year 2021 decided. 

The objectives of the Assembly will be to share the achievements and challenges of INFAL during the 2019-2020 work period; define the workplan for 2021 and vote on the new version of the INFAL’s Statute. As a result of this Assembly, the new INFAL Statute will be approved, the Executive Committee extended and the workplan for 2021 defined. 

In the attached agenda, you will find more information related to the INFAL Extraordinary Assembly. 

We hope to have the distinguished presence of the food analysis laboratories members of the INFAL.



The member laboratories can participate in the webinars, technical groups, online chats, technical fora and other activities.
