As agreed by the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) at its 13th session, a combined Call for Topics for Standards and Implementation resources for inclusion in the IPPC work programme was made for the first time in 2018. The Call is held every two years, except the current Call, where the CPM at its 14th session agreed that the Call for Topics would be refined and streamlined for the next Call in 2021 to capitalize on new ideas from the IYPH 2020 activities for topics for the IPPC work programme.
Contracting parties and regional plant protection organizations (RPPOs) should submit their topic proposals prior to 15 September 2021
Topics may include standards, such as new topics for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs); new components to existing ISPMs, such as supplements, annexes, appendices, or glossary terms; revisions or amendments to adopted ISPMs, supplements, annexes, appendices, or glossary terms; pests for which a new diagnostic protocol should be developed. In addition, topics may also include implementation resources, such as new implementation resources (e.g. guides, e-Learning courses, training kits, videos) and revisions to existing IPPC implementation resources.
The overall objective of the webinar is to strengthen the capacity and cooperation of NPPOs or RPPOs and raise awareness, enhance understanding, and improve the quality of the submissions. The webinar aimed to demonstrate the refined Call for Topics process and actions to ensure the high quality of the submissions. The webinar also allowed participants to raise questions and clarify the submission process during the questions and answers session.
IPPC OCPs, IPP editors, NPPO and RPPO staff, other relevant stakeholders.
