Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) Regional Workshop on Phytosanitary Irradiation Treatment

25/02/2019-01/03/2019 Hanoi, Viet Nam



The objectives of the workshop are unchanged from those set out in the summary of the proposal endorsed by the APPPC biennial session, viz. to provide delegates with a sound understanding of how to prepare and consider irradiation treatment proposals, apply irradiation as a phytosanitary measure and verify compliance. The workshop will draw on existing irradiation material, including IPPC, APPPC, ISO and IAEA standards and best-practice documentation, as noted in the endorsed proposal.

The workshop programme will include each of the components described in the Project Details section of the endorsed Project Proposal. However, it is now clear that the body of finalized protocols for irradiated commodities in the region may not be sufficient to sustain some of the sessions envisaged in the original, ‘three phase’ proposal.
