Current consultations for draft ISPMs

This is the master page for Draft ISPMs. It includes four subpages:

  • First consultation on draft ISPMs Following the revision of the standard setting procedure agreed to by IPPC contracting parties at CPM-11 (2016), the following first consultation lasts 90 days and will take place from 1st July to 30th September 2016

  • Second and subsequent consultation on draft ISPMs Taking into account the comments received during the First consultation, the Standards Committee (SC) or the Standards Committee Working Group (SC-7) revise the draft ISPM. Once the SC or SC-7 approves the draft ISPM for the Second (or Third) consultation, the IPPC Secretariat solicits comments through the IPPC Online Comment System (OCS) from CPs, RPPOs, relevant international organizations, national plant protection services of non-CPs, and other entities as decided by the SC.

  • Objections on draft ISPMs If all CPs support the adoption of the draft ISPM, the CPM should adopt the ISPM without discussion. If a CP does not support the adoption of the draft ISPM, the CP may submit an objection. An objection must be accompanied by technical justification

  • Notification period of DPs Contracting Parties have 45 days to review the approved DP and submit an objection, if any. If no objection is received, the SC, on behalf of the CPM, adopts the DP. DPs adopted through this process are noted by the CPM and attached to the report of the CPM meeting.


Once the Standards Committee (SC) approves the draft ISPM for the first consultation, the IPPC Secretariat makes it publicly available and solicits comments through the IPPC Online Comment System (OCS, https://ocs-new.ippc.int/) from CPs, RPPOs, relevant international organizations and other entities as decided by the SC.

Taking into account the comments received during the first consultation, the Standards Committee (SC) or the Standards Committee Working Group (SC-7) revise the draft ISPM.

Once the SC or SC-7 approves the draft ISPM for the second (or additional) consultation, the IPPC Secretariat solicits comments again through the IPPC OCS.


The Secretariat will post all compiled comments from the consultations below after the close of the commenting period.

The steward(s) or relevant TP reviews the comments, prepares responses to the comments and revises the draft ISPM and submits them to the Secretariat. These are posted for the SC.

The SC reviews the comments submitted from the first consultation, the Steward(s)' responses to the comments and the revised ISPM. The SC decides whether to recommend the draft ISPM to the CPM, or to put it on hold, return it to the Steward(s) or to an expert drafting group (EDG), or submit it for another round of consultation.

The IPPC Secretariat requests members to review the compiled comments and contact the Secretariat if their comments have not been recorded correctly.

For more information on the OCS, please visit the OCS page on the IPP. Please contact the IPPC Secretariat at IPPC-OCS@fao.org for assistance using the OCS.

Following revision of the standard setting procedure agreed to by IPPC contracting parties at CPM-11 (2016), the following consultations will last 90 days and will take place from 1st July to 30th September 2016, and will be run through the new OCS: https://ocs-new.ippc.int/.
