    Évaluation indépendante des travaux de la Convention internationale pour la protection des végétaux et de ses arrangements institutionnels 2005
    Also available in:

    La Convention internationale pour la protection des végétaux (CIPV) est un traité international pour la santé des plantes auquel 165 États adhèrent actuellement (septembre 2007). Le secrétariat est assuré par la FAO et la Convention est administrée par la Commission des mesures phytosanitaires (CMP). L’Accord sur les mesures sanitaires et phytosanitaires (SPS) de l’OMC reconnaît la CIPV comme étant l’organisation normative internationale chargée d’élaborer des normes internationales qui permettr aient d’éviter que les mesures phytosanitaires soient utilisées comme des obstacles injustifiés au commerce. Des mesures ont donc été prises pour adapter la Convention aux nouvelles réalités. Un texte révisé a été élaboré, élargissant le champ d’application et le mandat de la Convention afin d’inclure l’établissement de normes, la promotion de l’octroi d’une assistance technique et de prendre en compte les problèmes liés à l’environnement. Le texte révisé de la CIPV a été adopté en 1997 et il es t entré en vigueur en octobre 2005.

    Supporting the Implementation of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) - GCP/GLO/025/EC 2024

    Established in 1952, the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) seeks to protect the world’s plants from pests. The IPPC adopts International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPMs) and recommendations from the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), which is the governing body of the IPPC, to carry out its mission. A central issue to the IPPC and the ISPMs is a lack of phytosanitary capacity among Contracting Parties (CPs), especially developing and least developed countries, to implement the Convention and the ISPMs efficiently. This impacts international trade. This project was designed to tackle the three root causes of the issue: (i) a lack of participation among CPs in IPPC governing bodies; (ii) low levels of technical capacity; and (iii) a lack of engagement among developing countries in the Standard Setting Process (SSP).

    ‘Aquatic plants’ are not specifically mentioned in the text of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). Under the framework of the IPPC, however, they are mentioned for the first time in the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) 1. 2006. Phytosanitary principles for the protection of plants and the application of phytosanitary measures in international trade when a reference to them is made in the scope of the ISPM to indicate that as plants, they are to be protected. This concept was introduced into the revision of ISPM 6:2006.
