In November 2009, a workshop was held in Libreville, Gabon, with the aim of increasing familiarity with the Convention and the information exchange obligations identified in the Convention. Participants included the IPPC Contact Point, inspection agents from the ports and agricultural agents from the field. Workshop participants reviewed the reporting types identified in the convention, the parties responsible for reporting, functions of the information, receiving parties, and the related standards. There were also practical exercises regarding accessing, navigating and adding information to the IPPC website.
