CreatorInternational Plant Protection Convention (IPPC)
DescriptionThe International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is an international plant health agreement, established in 1952, that aims to protect cultivated and wild plants by preventing the introduction and spread of pests. The IPPC is implemented by the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), which facilitates cooperation between contracting parties to protect the world's cultivated and natural plant resources from the spread and introduction of pests of plants, while minimizing interference with the international movement of goods and people. IPPC’s core activities include: governance; standards setting; information exchange; dispute settlement; capacity building; reviewing the global status of plant protection. The forum is used for national IPPC reporting and the exchange of more general information among the phytosanitary community. Reports are posted on pest occurrence, phytosanitary regulations, points of entry, etc.
