This resource presents a guide to understanding the principal requirements for operating an organization to protect national plant resources from pests. This resource provides information on the operational procedures and actions required of a functional national plant protection organization (NPPO). It suggests an overall strategic framework and outlines the main areas to consider when operating and managing core programmes. In addition, the guide describes the supporting environment (including the stakeholders) needed by an NPPO to maintain the required level of efficiency, effectiveness and acceptability of phytosanitary activities.
