Description of the mark

The North American Plant Protection Organization(NAPPO) in cooperation with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is pleased to host a three-day international workshop on electronic phytosanitary certification (E-Cert). The workshop is scheduled to take place from May 19-21, 2009 in Ottawa, Canada E-Cert is a natural progression from paper based systems. Increasing documentation demands for trade, security concerns related to fraudulent documents and efficient and timely exchange of data are driving this move towards electronic certification. The objectives of the workshop are as follows: 1. Review of E-Cert approaches under development in different countries and regions; 2. Establishment of an international forum for information sharing and harmonization of approaches; and 3. Development of a strategic plan leading to standardized E-Cert under the International Plant Protection Convention.
