ISO has created – within the Committee for Standardization of honey and apiculture products (ISO-TC34-SC19) – a specific working group on Bee Propolis (WG2).
Dr. Andresa Berretta (Brazil) was elected to coordinate this team, formed by leading propolis experts from around the world.
The goal is to find a harmonization of all existing regulations on propolis and its derivatives.
The rise of such an initiative in the most important organization for international standards definition, demonstrates the importance achieved and the interest collected in the world by Propolis, that is now recognized in various countries as a solution for many types of infections.
Dr. Fachini – who has shown to represent a large number of votes – will assist Dr. Berretta in developing this challenging project.
