Intersessional Meetings of the Intergovernmental Group on Tea

The intersessional meeting considers the progress achieved by the various Working Groups (WGs) of the IGG on Tea. The WGs have the opportunity to meet during the session to assess the progress made, discuss the future work plan and provide feedback to the Group.

The WGs cover the following issues: Maximum Residue Levels (MRLs); MRLs in Tea Brew; Tea Trade and Quality; Organic Tea; Climate Change; Smallholders; and Statistics and Projections.

At the 22nd Session of the IGG/Tea in May 2016, the Group dissolved the Working Group on Maximum Residue Levels in the Brew as it had met all of its commitments and established the WG on Global Tea Market Analysis and Promotion.
