The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) has issued a call for topics seeking proposals for new plant health standards and new tools that support the implementation of existing standards. The call period is May 1 to August 31, 2018. Priority will be given to proposals that have the largest potential global impact, contribute to the purpose of the IPPC, can be implemented at the global level, clearly identify problems that need to be resolved through the development or implementation of standards, and for which there is adequate technical information available to support the proposed initiative. For more information visit the IPPC Website.

There you can view the criteria for proposals, download the submission forms, and read about other requirements.
Proposals may be submitted directly to the IPPC or through CAHFSA as the Regional Plant Protection Organization. Please send your proposals no later than July 30, 2018, to Juliet Goldsmith at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
