Approved specifications

Specifications serve as a term of reference for the Expert Drafting Group (EDG) responsible for developing an ISPM and provide guidance on the scope of the standard and on the tasks expected of the EDG. Specifications for ISPMs are reviewed, revised and approved by the Standards Committee (SC).

Specifications for ISPMs are clear and precise guidelines that an expert drafting group (EDG) should follow when drafting or revising a standard. Specifications are drafted by, or under the auspices of, the IPPC Secretariat, steward and the Standards Committee after direction is given by the Commission as to the standard’s priority. The specifications are sent for consultation and then reviewed, revised and approved by the SC.

Approved specifications for draft ISPMs under development are posted below.
