    ISPM 35. Systems approach for pest risk management of fruit flies (Tephritidae)
    Adopted 2012
    2018
    This standard provides guidance for the development, implementation and verification of integrated measures in a systems approach as an option for pest risk management of fruit flies (Tephritidae) of economic importance to facilitate trade of fruit fly host products or to minimize the spread of regulated fruit flies within an area. Annex 3, Appendix 1 and Appendix 2 of ISPM 26 also apply to this standard.

    An fundamental activity of national plant protection organizations is to conduct pest surveillance. For the purpose of international trade, the results of pest surveillance provide the basis for pest listing, identification of pest status, pest categorization and the conduct of pest risk analyses. In 1997, the International Plant Protection Convention issued the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) No. 6: Guidelines for surveillance to assist national organizations in the imp lementation of this critical activity. In 2011, it was decided to review these guidelines and identify challenges faced by the contracting parties for implementation, as well as identify resources for resolving those challenges. At the request of the Standards Committee of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), the Implementation Review and Support System will catalogue the challenges faced and make recommendations to the review panel of ISPM No. 6 on ways to improve the standard. It will also gather examples of best practices globally so that appropriate training materials and manuals might be prepared under the capacity development programme of the IPPC. For the purpose of this review, a questionnaire was developed and distributed among national plant protection organizations. Seventeen countries from Asia and the Pacific region responded to this call and completed the questionnaire, composed of three parts: the questionnaire, technical resources and best practices. Th e results from the survey were compiled and analyzed, and are presented in this publication, which reflects the current status of pest surveillance in the region. Conclusions and recommendations are included in the report.

    Policy brief
    Improving implementation of the systems approach for pest risk management in Southern Africa
    Policy brief

    National Plant Protection Organisations (NPPOs) play a critical role in managing risks related to the introduction and spread of pests while permitting the smooth flow of trade. The Systems Approach (SA) is increasingly being adopted as an alternative to single measures to meet the appropriate level of phytosanitary protection of an importing country. SA is a pest risk management option that integrates different measures, at least two of which act independently, with cumulative effect (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures ISPM 14). Each of these measures reinforces the effectiveness of the system and because they act independently if one fails, the system can continue. Correct application of the SA helps countries prevent the introduction of invasive species and protect crops and biodiversity while promoting trade safe. This policy brief has been developed to contribute towards improved understanding and implementation of the SA by NPPOs. It describes the SA and resources that support its implementation; and identifies gaps in its implementation. Useful recommendations are presented including the inclusion of relevant public and private sector stakeholders to facilitate the implementation of the SA, for financial support, and for capacity building of different players along the production chain.
