Technical Panel on Forest Quarantine (TPFQ)

Participants of the 8th meeting of the TPFQ in Victoria, Canada, June 2016

The Technical Panel on Forest Quarantine (TPFQ) is composed of ten members, a steward, and an assistant steward. The steward and assistant steward are representatives of the Standards Committee (SC). The TPFQ deals with technical matters regarding forest quarantine issues. It also works closely with the other technical panels (TPs), particularly the TP on Phytosanitary Treatments (TPPT) in developing guidance related to treatment for forest commodities. The TPFQ's primary function is reviewing relevant technical and scientific information to provide guidance to the SC as requested on development, amendment and revision of standards relating to forest quarantine.

One member of the TPFQ is also the Chair of International Forestry Research Group (IFQRG). IFQRG provides scientific and technical information resulting from analysis of complex phytosanitary issues.

Reports from TPFQ meetings and the current membership of the panel are posted below as well as the last update (document and presentation format) on the work of the TPFQ as presented to the SC in May 2015 .
