Current consultation on draft specifications for ISPMs

The Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) approves new topics for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM). The Standards Committee (SC) assigns a steward to each topic who, in consultation with the IPPC Secretariat, drafts a specification.

Specifications for ISPMs outline the content and scope of a future ISPM and are used by the expert drafting groups to draft the ISPM.

Once the SC approves the draft specification for consultation, the IPPC Secretariat makes it publicly available and solicits comments through the IPPC Online Comment System (OCS, https://ocs-new.ippc.int/) from contracting parties, RPPOs, national plant protection services of non-CPs, relevant international organizations, and other entities as decided by the SC.

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

The consultation period lasts 60 days: from 29 June to 31 August 2017 as 1 July falls on a Saturday.

The following draft specifications are submitted for consultation:

2015-003: Draft specification for ISPM: Audit in the phytosanitary context 2015-010: Draft specification for ISPM: Supplement on Guidance on the concept of the likelihood of establishment component of a pest risk analysis for quarantine pests to ISPM 11 (Pest risk analysis for quarantine pests) 2015-011: Draft specification for ISPM: Focused revision of ISPM 12 (Phytosanitary certificates) in relation to re-export

The compiled comments will be posted here below. The IPPC Secretariat invites IPPC Official contact points to review the compiled comments and contact the Secretariat if their comments have not been recorded correctly.
