The Technical Panel on Phytosanitary Treatments (TPPT) evaluates data submissions from NPPOs and RPPOs and reviews, revises and develops phytosanitary treatments. The TPPT also provides guidance to the Standards Committee (SC) regarding specific phytosanitary treatment issues. The TPPT evaluates treatment submissions against requirements in ISPM 28 (Phytosanitary treatments for regulated pests). The tasks of the panel are outlined in Specification TP 3. The TPPT works under the guidance of, and reports to, the SC as mandated by the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM).
Currently, the TPPT is composed of nine members, and a steward. The steward is the representatives of the SC. The expertise of the members are: Irradiation, fumigation, temperature, modified atmosphere and chemical treatments. The TPPT membership list is posted below at this page.
The TPPT oversees the information on the Phytosanitary treatments online search tool, a tool that enables to search for phytosanitary treatments used in international trade (IPPC adopted treatments and others) to enhance contracting parties’ access to treatments used in international trade.
The TPPT also works closely with the other Technical Panels, particularly the TP on Forest Quarantine (TPFQ) in developing guidance related to treatments on forest commodities.
Further information on the TPPT working procedures can be found in the IPPC Procedure Manual for standard setting. You can download a copy of the 2020-2021 IPPC Procedure Manual - Standard Setting by [clicking here].
The TPPT usually meets once a year and virtually as needed. For meetings dates, see the IPP calendar. The meetings reports are posted below at this page.
