ePhyto Steering Group


The IPPC ePhyto Steering Group was established by the 8th session of the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) to commence work on key components to assist countries with their implementation of ePhyto.

CPM-8 (2013) recognized the need for a programme to specifically promote and provide guidance on the development of ePhyto, and provide information and tools for those countries that opt to use an ePhyto system.

The purpose of the ePhyto Steering Group is to provide oversight, guidance and advice on IPPC efforts to facilitate the international exchange of electronic phytosanitary information among contracting parties.

Since the closing of the pilot phase of the project in 2019, the ePhyto Project Technical Committee (PTC) is no longer active and the United Nations International Computing Centre (UNICC) have become members of the ESG.
