Plant Health Standards and Safe Trade Facilitation

Austria Room (FAO Headquarters)
 Rome time

International trade has increased exponentially over the past 30 years and continues to increase.


Trade in plants and plant products stimulates economic growth, bringing prosperity to rural communities and agricultural sectors, but is also a pathway for harmful plant pests with potentially devastating consequences for food security.


The IPPC standards are key for countries to harmonize their phytosanitary measures to manage pest risks effectively and trade safely without spreading plant pests.


The seminar demonstrates the link between plant health standards and safe trade.
