The IPPC Secretariat makes a call for topics every two years. IPPC members and Technical Panels (TPs) submit detailed proposals for new topics or for the revision of existing ISPMs to the IPPC Secretariat. Submissions should be accompanied with a draft specification, a literature review and justification that the proposed topic meets the CPM-approved criteria for topics (available in the IPPC Procedure Manual). To indicate a broader need for the proposed topic, submitters are encouraged to gain support from other IPPC members and/or regions.
Topics being solicited include the following:
new topics for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs)
new components to existing ISPMs, such as supplements, annexes or appendices
revisions or amendments to adopted ISPMs, supplements, annexes, appendices or glossary terms
pests for which a new diagnostic protocol should be developed
new topics for phytosanitary treatments. Note that specific treatment submission data will be called for at a later date.
