The commission is a COMCOF (Commissions, Committees and Federations) of the International Union of Microbiological Societies (IUMS) and established in 1990.
The aims of the Commission are
- to improve and standardise methods for isolation, enumeration and identification of fungi in foods
- to interact with regulatory bodies, both national and international, concerning standards for mycological quality in foods and commodities;
- to support regional initiatives in this area.
The Commission further aims to extend understanding of the principles and methodology of food mycology in the scientific community by publishing its findings, and by sponsoring meetings, specialist workshops, courses and sessions dealing with aspects of its work.
