The Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM)

Jump to Publications ↓

The IPPC is governed by the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), which was established under Article XII of the New Revised Text of the IPPC, approved in 1997, and serves as the Convention's governing body. The CPM meets during March or April each year at FAO headquarters in Rome, Italy, to promote cooperation to help implement the objectives of the IPPC. In particular, the Commission:

  • reviews the state of plant protection around the world

  • identifies action to control the spread of pests into new areas

  • develops and adopts international standards

  • establishes rules and procedures for resolving disputes

  • adopts guidelines for the recognition of regional plant protection organizations; and

  • cooperates with international organizations on matters covered by the Convention

The members of the Commission are the contracting parties to the Convention and are responsible for implementing the work programme of standards development, information exchange and capacity building. Commission meetings are attended by contracting parties and by observers from organizations such as the Regional Plant Protection Organizations, the WTO Sanitary and Phytosanitary Committee, the Standards and Trade Development Facility, and the Convention on Biological Diversity. Meetings also host a scientific session for discussion of important issues. Past sessions have covered topics such as pest movements through food aid shipments and the potential impact of climate change on the spread of invasive alien species.

CPM documents are posted on this page as they become available. Due to the fact that the CPM documents are created in a template which supports only .docx format and not all users can open this format, we will only post the documents in PDF.

Please note that in 2014, the effort continues to reduce the amount of paper used at CPM. As in 2013, there will be a very limited number of copies of the papers available. Please download your own documents or download them onto your computer.

Please note that in some cases English version of the CPM document has been revised after first time posting on IPP, before the other language versions were available. The new revised document in English is now named : En_rev.01. Please note that these changes reflect to all language versions, but the other language versions are not posted as revisions in that case.
