Implementation Review & Support System (IRSS)

The Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS) is an evaluation tool which identifies your country's plant protection challenges and best practices. How does this help your country? By generating global and regional information, a broader reach of country feedback improves upon the development of IPPC standards, taking into account as many country implementation challenges as possible. Identifying challenging areas as well as best practices is also a vital input in the strategic development of resources and tools to assist your country and region. The Helpdesk feature below serves to support cooperation and assistance between contracting parties as well as the plant protection community.

Surveys, workshops, detailed studies and other information-gathering efforts are critical to tracking progress towards strong implementation of ISPMs.


The helpdesk provides an interactive Question and Answer (Q&A) Forum, a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) and links to Phytosanitary Resources.
