Global review of phytosanitary surveillance in the context of the IPPC Standard (ISPM6) - identification of challenges and best practice

A foundation activity of NPPOs is the conduct of pest surveillance. The products of pest surveillance provide the basis for pest listing, identification of pest status, pest reporting, pest categorization and the conduct of pest risk analyses.

In 2004, the IPPC approved ISPM6: Guidelines for surveillance as a basis to assist NPPOs for implementing this fundamental activity. In 2011, ISPM6 was flagged for review by the Standards Committee of the IPPC. The newly initiated Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS) of the IPPC, will play a role in the review of the standard. The IRSS is an overarching programme of the IPPC aimed at identifying challenges of contracting parties for implementation of the IPPC and its standards as well as identifying resources for resolving those challenges.

The IRSS is launching a series of workshops in several regions of the world to catalogue the challenges faced by NPPOs for the implementation of ISPM6 with a view to making recommendations to the review panel of the ISPM6 on ways to improve it. The IRSS will also be gathering examples of best practice globally so that appropriate training material and manuals might be prepared under the capacity development programme of the IPPC. The APPPC has been identified as a partner in this endeavour. 

The primary objective of this series of workshops is to identify concrete ways to improve the implementation of ISPM6.
