e-Commerce Guide for plants, plant products and other regulated articles (2017-039)

Developing a guide on e-Commerce is one component of the IPPC programme on e-Commerce, which is under the guidance of the Implementation and Capacity Development Committee (IC).

The IPPC e-Commerce Guide will provide practical solutions to assist national plant protection organizations (NPPOs) in managing the pest risk associated with international e-Commerce trade. It will focus on electronic transactions that lead to the international movement of plants, plant products and other regulated articles, particularly those that follow non-traditional distribution patterns (i.e. business-to-consumer and consumer-to-consumer transactions). It will also offer guidance to assist NPPOs to strengthen cooperation and communication with other relevant border agencies and to improve collaboration at a national level in order to facilitate low risk trade while ensuring phytosanitary requirements are met.

The Process for the Development of IPPC Implementation and Capacity Development Guides and Training Materials outlines the stages, methods and processes that guide the development and revision of implementation resources under the auspices of the IPPC Secretariat.
