THE PROCESS

According to stage 4 of the Standard Setting process, Adoption and publication, if a contracting party (CP) does not support the adoption of a draft ISPM, the CP may submit an objection. The objection must be submitted to the Secretariat and must be accompanied by technical justification and suggestions for improvement of the draft ISPM. The Secretariat will make available all objections received.

For draft Diagnostic Protocols (DPs), the CPM has delegated its authority to adopt DPs on its behalf to the Standards Committee (SC). Once the SC approves the DP, the Secretariat makes it available and contracting parties are notified.

The notification period for approved DPs is opened twice a year, on the following dates:

  • from 01 July to 15 August

  • from 05 January to 20 February

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

Objections for approved draft diagnostic protocols must be submitted to the IPPC Secretariat via e-mail IPPC@fao.org by the IPPC Official Contact Point.

For any questions or concerns, please contact the IPPC Secretariat at IPPC@fao.org.


For requesting translation of draft diagnostic protocols (DPs) into the FAO languages the mechanism posted on the IPP at https://www.ippc.int/en/core-activities/standards-setting/notification-period-dps/mechanism-translate-diagnostic-protocols-languages/ should be followed.
