The report of the December 2014 meeting of the Technical Panel for the Glossary (TPG) has been posted today.
In the words of the TPG Steward, terms are the most important building blocks to ensure harmonized understanding and ultimately facilitating trade and limiting the introduction and spread of pests.
The TPG meets annually to work on phytosanitary terms and consistency in the use of phytosanitary terminology in standards. The panel proposes amendments to ISPM 5 Glossary of phytosanitary terms which assists national plant protection organizations and others in information exchange and the harmonization of vocabulary used in official communications and legislation.
The report can be downloaded from the Technical Panel for the Glossary of phytosanitary terms page. Here is a direct link.
