The opening session was attended by 332, ten from observing Regional Plant Protection Organizations, 102 from IPPC contracting parties, the World Trade Organizations, the World Customs Organization, the Standards and Trade Development Facility, and the Convention on Biological Diversity, among others.
This newsletter also covers topics on the CPM-16 such as adopting nine new plant health standards to enhance worldwide plant health, a POARS Steering Group to fight pest outbreaks, five new phytosanitary treatments, and the transition of implementation review and support system of the IPPC observatory and more.
