In 2012, the IPPC Secretariat decided to separate the IPPC Procedural Manual into standalone sections, especially since the standard setting section (Section 3) was changing more constantly than the other sections. The IPPC Procedural Manual for Standard Setting is presented on this web page.
The purpose of this manual is to provide a convenient consolidation of decisions, procedures, practices and forms used in the IPPC standard setting process. The 2015-2016 edition of the manual includes decisions and procedures made up to and including the May 2015 Standards Committee meeting and technical panel decisions made before September 2015. The decisions and procedures described herein are subject to amendment by future revisions. The manual will be revised annually in September to include any new decisions and procedures and to amend existing decisions and procedures as necessary.
For the purpose of clarity, all official text, is in black font. Some procedures and decision of the Commission Bureau and Standards Committee are also are in black font, with details of their source noted. Text that is in blue font is for explanatory purposes only and should not be considered to be official decisions.
