The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat is soliciting case studies for inclusion in the IPPC Guide on Implementation of risk-based inspection for imported consignments (2018-022)
Deadline: Submissions are due 30 September 2023
This call is intended to solicit case studies that may be used to enhance the IPPC Guide on Implementation of risk-based inspection for imported consignments (2018-022).
We are looking for specific examples or stories that describe the activities that NPPOs have undertaken to implement risk-based inspection for imported consignments including stories about less than perfect initiatives, which are often just as interesting as the successes. Case studies should focus on a particular issue related to risk-based inspection and describe what the NPPO has done to prepare and respond to the challenges, including: outcomes, impacts, lessons learned and plans to enhance future activities related to risk-based inspection.
Scope of the Guide on Risk-based inspection
This Guide is designed to facilitate the implementation of relevant principles and standards of the IPPC to improve inspection based on risks from the international trade of plants, plant products and other regulated articles. The focus of the guide will be on traditional freight consignments (passengers, postal and express courier pathways are excluded).
The Guide will assist national plant protection organizations (NPPOs and other authorized agencies conducting inspection of imported consignments) in understanding and applying best practices for risk management associated with using inspection as a phytosanitary measure for imported consignments.
Additional information may be found in the Specification for the IPPC Guide on Implementation of risk-based inspection for imported consignments (2018-022) , which is available at: https://www.ippc.int/en/publications/91792/
Who can submit case studies?
National Plant Protection Organizations (NPPO), Regional Plant Protection Organizations (RPPO), international organizations, research institutions and NGOs are invited to submit case studies for consideration.
Please note that submissions will be reviewed by the IPPC Secretariat and Working Group experts and only those selected by the Working Group members for inclusion will be published. Submissions will be selected using the following criteria:
