    ISPM 40. International movement of growing media in association with plants for planting
    Adopted 2017
    2017
    Also available in:

    This standard provides guidance for the assessment of the pest risk of growing media in association with plants for planting and describes phytosanitary measures to manage the pest risk of growing media associated with plants for planting in international movement. Growing media moved as a separate commodity, contaminating a commodity or used as packaging material are not considered in this standard.

    Mango (Mangifera indica) fruit is one of important fruit commodities. Its production has been growing in the Asia and Pacific region. However, its trade is sometimes hindered by pests when they are introduced to importing countries and have the potential of negative economic impacts. Pests that move with fresh mango and have historically posed a serious threat to agriculture include fruit flies, fruit boring moths and beetles, as well as scale insects and mealybugs. Risks of such pests may vary within and between countries. In this connection, importing NPPOs should conduct pest risk analysis (PRA) to identify quarantine pests and provide the technical justification for phytosanitary import requirements. Hence a regional standard has been developed. The standard will help promote trade by providing a set of harmonized measures that may be applied to the management of pest risks identified by the PRA. Where appropriate, pests are grouped according to the measures that effectively manage pest risk. This standard provides guidance on procedures for establishing phytosanitary import requirements. It identifies and describes specific phytosanitary measures that could be implemented to reduce pest risk and provides guidance on sampling, inspection and phytosanitary certification of mango fruit for export. This standard also provides national plant protection organizations (NPPOs) with guidance on reducing the risk of introduction of specific pests associated with the international movement of fresh mango fruit intended for consumption or processing. This standard applies to all varieties of mango fruit with or without a small section of fruit stalk (pedicel) attached but without leaves or stem. Some major pests of mango fruit, and measures to manage them are also included in this standard. These measures include those that have been adopted as International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs) as well as those that are used by APPPC member countries to reduce the movement of pests with the international trade of fresh mango. This standard does not address the issues related to living modified organisms, food safety, climate change, quality of mango fruit, or diversion from intended use.

    ISPM 14. The use of integrated measures in a systems approach for pest risk management
    Adopted 2002
    2019
    This standard provides guidelines for the development and evaluation of integrated measures in a systems approach as an option for pest risk management under the relevant international standards for pest risk analysis (PRA) designed to meet phytosanitary import requirements for plants, plant products and other regulated articles.
