This brochure is published within the framework of the Scheme for the Application
of International Standards for Fruit and Vegetables established by OECD in 1962. This
is the first OECD brochure which is based on a Codex Standard. It interprets the first
international standard on pomegranates, which was adopted by the Codex Alimentarius
Commission in 2013. It comprises explanatory notes and illustrations to facilitate
the uniform interpretation of this new standard. This new brochure illustrates the
standard text and demonstrates the quality parameters on high quality photographs.
Thus, it is a valuable tool for the inspection authorities, professional bodies and
traders interested in international trade in pomegranates. The brochure also includes
a USB key containing the hyperlinked electronic version of the publication, as well
as all illustrative materials in high definition photographs. .
