WHAT are ISPMs?

  • ISPM = International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures

  • Developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (under WTO)

    by NPPOs

  • Facilitate development of pest prevention regulations by member countries


A Phytosanitary Measure

  • Must be technically justified (science)

  • Must be least restrictive of trade

  • ISPMs

    • help harmonize measures

    • Improve trade flow

    • Reduce the spread of pests


WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?
