The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat is soliciting submissions for Phytosanitary treatments to be adopted as international standards, as annexes to ISPM 28 (Phytosanitary treatments for regulated pests).
Submissions will be accepted from Contracting Parties or Regional Plant Protection Organizations (RPPOs). Submissions should be sent through the respective IPPC Official Contact Point.
Instructions for submissions
Data in these submissions will be reviewed rigorously, and will result in a clearly stated level of efficacy.
The name of the submitting country or RPPO and the words “Call for Phytosanitary Treatments” should be placed in the subject line of the email message.
The submission should include all of the information required and outlined in ISPM 28 (Phytosanitary treatments for regulated pests), keeping in mind the Criteria for justification and prioritization of proposed topics.
The submission should identify a contact person for the treatment who may be contacted for clarification as required.
Process for the adoption of phytosanitary treatments:
The submission forms are collected by the Secretariat, then compiled and forwarded to the Technical Panel on Phytosanitary Treatments (TPPT) to review the submission and evaluate them against ISPM 28 and the Criteria for justification and prioritization of proposed topics. The treatments will be adopted through the IPPC Standard Setting Procedure and posted at the adopted phytosanitary treatments as Annexes to ISPM 28.
For additional information on how treatments are reviewed by the TPPT please look up section 8.8 in the IPPC Procedure Manual for Standard Setting.
You may also refer to the TPPT research guidelines to support researchers.
Please note: All phytosanitary treatment submissions are posted below along with the supporting documentation. If the supporting documentation is confidential, the submitter should indicate this on the submission form.
