Development of the e-Commerce Guide (2017-039)


e-Commerce Guide for plants, plant products and other regulated articles (2017-039)

Developing a guide on e-Commerce is one component of the IPPC programme on e-Commerce, which is under the guidance of the Implementation and Capacity Development Committee (IC).

The purpose of this Guide is to increase awareness among IPPC contracting parties, e-commerce stakeholders and different international organizations about the potential phytosanitary risks associated with e-commerce trade of plants, plant products and other regulated goods and to provide guidance to reduce the incidence of pests and other phytosanitary risks associated with cross-border e-commerce trade. This guide will provide guidance and implementation resources for NPPOs and e-commerce stakeholders to address the issue of plants, plant products and other regulated articles sold through e-commerce and distributed through mail and courier pathways.
