    Regional Standards for Phytosanitary Measures. Guidelines for the confirmation of non-host status of fruit and vegetables to tephritid fruit flies 2005

    A standard method for the confirmation of non-host status of fruit and vegetables to tephritid fruit flies has important ramifications for international trade in many fresh fruit and vegetable commodities. Non-host or conditional non-host status at a particular stage of harvest maturity can be used as a phytosanitary measure to ensure freedom from fruit fly infestation. However, published records of hosts for particular fruit fly species may not always be reliable for determining non-host stat us for phytosanitary purposes. They may be misleading, incomplete or incorrect for negotiating market access protocols. This standard uses well-known techniques to provide a regular methodology for solving the problem of inaccurate host status records or the absence of host status information. This standard was endorsed by the by the twenty-fourth session of the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) held in Bangkok, Thailand in September 2005. Regional standards for phytosa nitary measures are developed and adopted by APPPC as part of the plant protection programme of the Commission's contracting parties to support regional harmonization and facilitate trade of commodities by member countries.

    Regional Standards for Phytosanitary Measures. Guidelines for the development of heat disinfestation treatments of fruit fly host commodities 2004

    Phytosanitary measures are often required for imported commodities to prevent the introduction of quarantine pests. Such measures need to be appropriate for a specific commodity and effective against the quarantine pests of that commodity. Among the options available, heat treatment is regarded as one the measures that is environmentally friendly and free from residues. Endorsed by the twenty-third session of the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in August 2003, these guidelines describe methods for identifying and developing appropriate heat disinfestation treatments against quarantine fruit flies in host commodities traded by APPPC member countries. Regional standards for phytosanitary measures are developed and adopted by APPPC as part of the plant protection programme of the Commission's contracting parties to support regional harmonization and facilitate trade of commodities by member countries.

    Regional Standards for Phytosanitary Measures. Guidelines for the pest risk analysis on scale insects associated with commodities for human consumption 2007
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    This standard provides guidelines for assessing the quarantine risks posed by scale insects and the risk management measures that may be applied. The scope of this standard is restricted to scale insects affecting fresh fruit and vegetables for human consumption moving in international trade, and excludes plants and plant products intended for propagation or processing. Guidelines for pest risk analysis include consideration of aspects of initiation, assessment of probability of introduction and spread, and assessment of potential economic consequences. Options for risk management include sourcing the commodities from pest free areas, in-field management of the insects, areas of low pest prevalence, pre-export or on arrival phytosanitary inspection and possible remedial action, and disinfestation. This standard was endorsed by the twenty-fourth session of the Asia and Pacific Plant Protection Commission (APPPC) held in Bangkok, Thailand in September 2005. Regional standards for phytosa nitary measures are developed and adopted by APPPC as part of the plant protection programme of the Commission's contracting parties to support regional harmonization and facilitate trade of commodities by member countries.
