This is to inform you that, given the current COVID-19 outbreak in Italy, considering the travel restrictions being implemented by many countries and to ensure the safety and health of all participants, the fifteenth session of the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM-15) has been postponed.
The new dates of the CPM-15 session are 29 June - 3 July 2020. Please note that the invitations sent by the FAO Director-General remain valid, as well as nominations and registrations already sent and done.
The agenda, meeting papers and schedule will remain the same. The Ministerial segment will be held on 2 July 2020.
Concerned participants will be contacted individually to re-arrange their tickets and hotel accommodation as required.
We invite you to regularly check the IPPC website for further updates: www.ippc.int. Please note that the present meeting date may be also subject to change due to the evolving situation which will be notified in due course.
We remain available should you require further information.
Thanks for your understanding and cooperation.
