CPM Recommendations


During its regular annual sessions, many matters are put forward to the CPM for decisions or agreement of its members. These matters can have different levels of importance and different implications for CPM members. These matters include decisions or agreement on International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs), short or long term procedural and administrative matters, and long term operational matters.

At the Fifth Sesssion of the Commision on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM-5, 2010), the CPM was invited to consider the proposed way of recording and keeping track of CPM Recommendations including its decisions and agreements, based on the previous discussions in CPM-3 and CPM-4.

CPM-5, noting the scope of CPM Recommendations, agreed to revoke the ICPM-5 (2003) decision on the recommendation on the future of methyl bromide for phytosanitary purposes and agreed that it has been replaced by the IPPC Recommendation on replacement or reduction of the use of methyl bromide as a phytosanitary measure adopted by CPM-3 (2008).

CPM-5 also requested the Secretariat to:

  • review the remaining CPM or ICPM decisions (paragraph 19 of CPM 2010/3) with a view to updating them, if required, and to present them to the next CPM for approval as CPM-6 Recommendations, and,
  • publish the recommendation CPM-3/2008 on Replacement or reduction of the use of methyl bromide as a phytosanitary measure prominently on the IPP independently from the report of CPM-3.

IPPC Secretary published the recommendation CPM-3/2008 on Replacement or reduction of the use of methyl bromide as a phytosanitary measure prominently on the IPP independently from the report of CPM-3.


The following table shows the list of CPM Recommendations (CPM or ICPM decisions), each of which is attached as Annex 2 to 6 in the adopted presentation form.
