The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat is soliciting nominations for appropriately qualified experts to take part in the Expert working group (EWG) to develop a draft International standard for phytosanitary measures (ISPM) on Guidance on pest risk management (2014-001).

Nominations are due 20 September 2017.

Six to eight experts with collective expertise in:

  • conducting pest risk analyses (PRAs)
  • evaluating and selecting pest risk management options
  • applying phytosanitary measures in the international trade of plants and plant products.

Experts with extensive experience and expertise across a number of these fields will be given priority.

The discussions and work of expert working groups (EWGs) take place in English, so experts should have a strong working knowledge of English.

The selected experts should be available to attend the EWG meeting, which is tentatively scheduled for 5-9 March 2018 in Malta, and any change will be published on the IPPC Calendar (2018).
