Regional standards for phytosanitary measures are developed and adopted by the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission as part of the plant protection programme of the Commission's contracting parties. This programme makes available to contracting and other interested parties regional standards for phytosanitary measures to support regional harmonization, with the aim to facilitate trade and avoid the use of unjustifiable measures as barriers to trade.
This standard was endorsed by the twenty-fifth session of the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission in August 2007.
Assistant Director-General and
FAO Regional Representative for
Asia and the Pacific
This Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) Regional Standard for Phytosanitary Measures was endorsed by the twenty-fifth session of the APPPC held from 27 to 31 August 2007 in Beijing, China.
APPPC Regional Standards for Phytosanitary Measures are subject to periodic review. The next review date for this standard is 2013. The standard may be reviewed earlier if the APPPC decides this is necessary.
APPPC Regional Standards for Phytosanitary Measures are distributed by the Executive Secretariat of the APPPC to all APPPC members, the Administrative Heads of Regional Plant Protection Organizations and the FAO International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) Secretariat. This standard is available on the APPPC webpage found within the International Phytosanitary Portal:http://www.ippc.int/En/rppo/jsp
