The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is inviting stakeholders to submit comments on proposed revisions to the international standards for phytosanitary measures under the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC)
The IPPC is an international treaty that establishes a common approach to preventing the introduction and spread of plant pests and promotes measures for their control.
The CFIA is Canada's representative to the IPPC and is responsible for submitting comments to the IPPC on behalf of Canadians.
The 2016 consultation is open on the CFIA website until September 2, 2016
