This kit contains a manual and a set of 9 forms for NGOs and government authorities to monitor the International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes, relevant WHA resolutions and the Guidance on ending the inappropriate promotion of foods for infants and young children.  The Code Monitoring Kit results from the cumulative efforts of IBFAN monitors around the world. They started monitoring company practices even before the Code was adopted and this edition is a tribute to their efforts and is published in 2019 to commemorate the 40th anniversary of IBFAN. This edition is revised by Yeong Joo Kean, Constance Ching and Jane Tang and edited by Annelies and Jean-Pierre Allain for the International Code Documentation Centre (ICDC).
