NOTES

ISPMs are no longer published in the Book of standards, but PDF files of the standards will be collated into one file if this is deemed useful.

The English version of ISPMs adopted before CPM-7 (2012) (posted on 15 Dec. 2011) have been reformatted and ink amendments from CPM-5 (2010) and CPM-6 (2011) have been incorporated. Minor adjustments to the format of ISPM 27 and ISPM 28 were made in all languages (e.g. Annexes are now published individually).

2013-08-26: Ink amendments as noted by CPM-8 (2013) were applied to: ISPM 5 and Supplement 2 to ISPM 5, ISPM 9, ISPM 15, ISPM 16, ISPM 17, ISPM 20, ISPM 23, and ISPM 25 (English only). As resources will become available, we will also implement these changes into the other languages.

EXPANDABLE LAYOUT

2013-10-08: Previous versions of adopted ISPMs and translations into non-official FAO languages (currently Korean, Portuguese and Vietnamese) are available by clicking on the "Show details" tab of each ISPM row.
