Diagnostic Protocols General principles

  • DPs provide the minimum requirements for reliable diagnosis of regulated pests.
  • The methods are selected on the basis of their sensitivity, specificity and reproducibility.
  • Availability of equipment, the expertise required for these methods and their practicability are also taken into account.
  • Harmonization requires compromise.

DPs are not scientific publications but adopted international standards to which IPPC contracting parties have agreed.
