National Reporting Obligations

 
The International Plant Protection Convention establishes several reporting obligations which are the responsibility of the contracting parties to the Convention. Contracting parties should at least report on the following:
  • a single Official Contact Point (Art. VIII 2 of the IPPC);
  • a description of its official national plant protection organization (Art. IV 4 of the IPPC);
  • phytosanitary requirements, restrictions and prohibitions which are currently in force (Art. VII 2b of the IPPC);
  • specific points of entry (for consignments of particular plants or plant products required to be imported only through those specific points) (Art. VII 2d of the IPPC);
  • lists of regulated pests, using scientific names, which are currently in force (Art. VII 2i of the IPPC);
  • pest reporting, i.e. reporting regarding occurrence, outbreak and spread of pests (Art. VIII 1a of the IPPC);
  • emergency actions (Art. VII 6 of the IPPC).
The Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) agreed that providing the reports via the International Phytosanitary Portal – the IPP (https://www.ippc.int/) - is the preferred method of meeting official national reporting obligations while making them publicly available.
 
Official Contact Points (OCPs) designated by the contracting parties are responsible for the reporting and are in practice responsible for providing reports via the IPP or bilaterally on request by other contacting parties when the Convention requires so.
 
All OCPs and their OCP nominated editors have been given permission to upload reports on the IPP. The guide to National Reporting Obligations has been prepared to assist in reporting issues. The Guide is available to be downloaded among the publications below.
 
The summary tables with reports uploaded so far by the countries could be found here:

In case you experience problems with uploading your NRO information, please do not hesitate to contact the IPPC Secretariat (Dorota Buzon). You can also consult the Frequently Asked Questions page.
