International movement of grain workshop

Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

December 6-8, 2011

During the scientific session of forth meeting of Commission on Phytosanitary measures (CPM-4 :2009) under agenda item 15.1 on the issue of pests moving in food aid, the CPM agreed that an open-ended workshop on the international movement of grain would be especially important, in view of the presentations received and the comments made in the discussion. The CPM decided that an open-ended workshop on the international movement of grain should be convened depending on the availability of extra budgetary resources. NAPPO took the lead in organizing the workshop, supported by the APPPC and a Steering Committee composed of representatives of NAPPO, APPPC, IPPC and Canada. 

The CPM-5 (2010) noted terms of reference.

Presentations from the workshop along with the Report of the workshop are posted below.

The Agenda is hyperlinked to each presentation for your convenience.

The outcomes of this workshop were consider in the development of Specification 60 that will help guide an Expert Working Group (EWG) on the International movement of grain. The EWG is planned to take place in Melbourne, Australia in September 2016.
