Contact points for NPPOs and RPPOs are reminded that in accordance with the IPPC Standard Setting Procedure adopted by CPM-3 (2008), comments on draft ISPMs should be sent to the IPPC Secretariat at least 14 days before the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) meeting. Therefore comments should be received no later than 14:00 (GMT-1) Monday, 08 March 2010. Templates for submitting comments are available on the following page of the website: https://www.ippc.int/index.php?id=draft_ispms_for_cpm.
In addition, members are invited to take the following points into account in preparation for the CPM and in accordance with the decision at the 6th Session of the Interim Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (ICPM-6) in 2004 in relation to the improvements of standard-setting procedures:
Members should endeavour to provide only substantive comments at meetings of the CPM. Members should endeavour to provide comments in writing to the Secretariat at least 14 days before the CPM. The Secretariat will provide a copy of all comments received (in original form or as compiled comments) at the start of the CPM. Members should indicate which comments are strictly editorial (i.e. they do not change the substance of the text) and could be incorporated by the Secretariat as considered appropriate and necessary.
