Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), 10th Session - Opening Session. FAO Headquarters (Plenary Hall).

The annual meeting of the Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), the governing body of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), brings together senior plant health specialists from the 181 member countries.

The CPM's task is, among other things, to review and establish International Standards on Phytosanitary Measures that govern how plants and plant products should be handled during movement and transport. It also endorses ways to support developing countries improve the effectiveness of their National Plant Protection Organizations.

The purpose of the standards is to minimize the risks of plant pests circulating across borders and regions in the increasingly vast context of global trade.
