IGTC volunteers to support progress and future success of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and its 184 governmental Contracting Parties at the 15th Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM15) 16th, 18th March, 1 April

IGTC has launched an effort to support and enhance trade facilitative official phytosanitary practices at the 15th the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM15), which can be considered as the 2021 annual “parliament” of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).

The event will take place virtually on 16th and 18th of March, and 1st April, and will be chaired by the Government of Mexico.

In this unique year of the UN Food Systems Summit (UNFSS) and the International Year of Plant Health (IYPH), the network of knowledge and expertise fostered by the IGTC constituency is well placed to support and inform the work of the IPPC. IGTC wants to emphasize the importance of the work of National and Regional Plant Protection Organizations (NPPOs, RPPOs) acting in coordination with the value chain and within the IPPC guidance to deploy and communicate least trade distortive measures to protect of the world's plant resources from the spread and introduction of pests, and promote safe trade.
