On 5 February, 2013, in Rome, the Secretariat of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and representatives from the European Commission’s (EC) DG Sanco and DG Trade met to continue their discussions on issues of common interest and collaboration.

The Secretariat and the EC spoke about the progress of current projects concerning capacity building in the field, electronic phytosanitary certification (ePhyto) developments, and the ongoing Implementation Review and Support System (IRSS).  Sustainable support of such issues will lead to a more transparent and collaborative working environment.
