Training material on pest risk analysis based on IPPC standards

Under the IPPC, three international standards for phytosanitary measures (ISPMs) on pest risk analysis (PRA) have been developed and adopted:  

  • ISPM No. 2 (2007): Framework for pest risk analysis
  • ISPM No. 11 (2004): Pest risk analysis for quarantine pests including analysis of environmental risks and living modified organisms
  • ISPM No. 21 (2004): Pest risk analysis for regulated non-quarantine pests.
To help countries understand and implement these standards, an international advisory group of PRA experts was established to develop a training course and training materials designed to increase countries' capacity to conduct PRA. The training course is designed to take place over 5 days, and consists of 14 presentations that explain PRA concepts and practices and 14 group exercises to demonstrate these. Three manuals and all other related materials are now available:
  • a manual for participants taking the course
  • a manual containing the group exercises
  • powerpoint presentations
  • a manual for instructors giving the course
  • speaker's notes for giving the presentations.

These materials are freely available for use by any interested party. They can be downloaded here.
