Plant health: Harmonizing global phytosanitary measures, paperless trade 

This week the IGTC attended the IPPC’s annual “Committee on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM)” which brought together 183 governments at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome.

The IGTC was able to signal the grain trade’s ongoing commitment to engagement with the IPPC at the event. Contact was made with a number of governments including the African Union, Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, New Zealand, South Korea, UK, Ukraine and USA.

Critical to the IGTC’s mission to achieve a market and regulatory environment supportive of the international trade of grain, oilseeds, pulses and derived products, there was debate on:

  1. The International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) on grain and principles for commodity and pathway standards more generally.
  2. The progress of the ePhyto initiative (latest updates here).
