The Task Force on Topics meeting was held at FAO Headquarters, Rome, Italy from 1-3 October 2018.
The Task Force reviewed submissions to the 2018 Call for Topics: Standards and Implementation and prepared recommendations to the Standards Committee and Implementation and Capacity Development Committee.
The Report of the meeting is now available here.
The Call for Topics closed on 31 August 2018.
The IPPC Secretariat received 36 submissions in answer to the call for topics and these are summarized in this document. All submissions received have been posted below (2018-005 to 2018-040).
The submissions will be reviewed by the Task Force on Topics, the Standards Committee and the Implementation and Capacity Development Committee, who will develop a recommendation for inclusion into the IPPC work programme. CPM-14 (2019) will consider the recommendations and decide on the adoption of the submitted topics.
As agreed by the 13th Session of the Commission of Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), a combined call for topics for Standards and Implementation resources to be included in the IPPC work programme is being made for the first time in 2018. The call is made every two years. The last call for topics (for standards only) occurred in 2015.
The 2018 call for topics: Standards and Implementation starts on 1 May 2018 and ended on 31 August 2018.
Topics being solicited include the following:
Proposals for Phytosanitary Treatments (as annexes to ISPM 28: Phytosanitary treatments for regulated pests) are solicited separately in an ongoing call for treatments.
Submission of Topic proposals:
IPPC contracting parties and Regional Plant Protection Organizations (RPPOs) are invited to submit detailed proposals for new topics or for the revision of existing material to the IPPC Secretariat.
Please note that CPM-13 requested contracting parties and RPPOs to use the Framework for Standards and Implementation as a reference when responding to the call for topics in order to fill gaps identified by the Framework. Please also note that CPM-11 (2016) agreed that any submission in response to a call for topics should clearly define the problem needing resolution in sufficient detail to determine how it fits into the Framework of Standards and Implementation and the cost/benefit of the development of the standard or implementation tool.
Submissions should be accompanied by a draft specification for standards or a draft outline for implementation resources, and also include a literature review and a justification how the proposed topic meets the CPM-13 approved criteria for justification and prioritization of proposed topics.
To indicate a broader need for the proposed topic, submitters are encouraged to gain support from other contracting parties and/or RPPOs and to provide letters of support from them.
Please review the documents below:
Electronic forms should be saved and submitted as:
2018_TOPIC_ [COUNTRY or ORGANIZATION NAME – Proposed title of topic].docx
All documents must be submitted by the IPPC Official Contact Point, by email to the IPPC Secretariat at email@example.com, no later than 31 August 2018 (subject of the message: "Call for Topics - 2018").
Process of the Call for Topics: standard and implementation
After the call closes, the Secretariat will compile the list of proposed work programme topics from the received submissions and post them on the IPP. Submissions from previous calls will not be considered unless resubmitted in 2018. In a process agreed by CPM-13 (see Figure), the Task force on Topics (TFT) will screen the submitted topics against established criteria for justification and prioritization of proposed topics and develop recommendations to the Standards Committee (SC) and Implementation and Capacity Development Committee (IC) for in depth review. After evaluating the entire list of submissions and associated recommendations, the SC and IC will recommend topics for the development of standards and/or implementation resources and suggest an associated position in the Framework for Standards and Implementation. The TFT will discuss SC and IC outcomes, agree with and prepare recommendations and priorities to the recommendations to be presented to the CPM for adoption.
