On May 12, the North American Plant Protection Organization (NAPPO) posted on its website the draft NAPPO Strategic Plan for consultation (review and commenting). APHIS is inviting U.S. stakeholders to submit comments on the draft by June 8, to its Plant Protection and Quarantine Program (PPQ).
NAPPO provides a collaborative forum for public and private sectors in Canada, the United States and Mexico for the protection of agricultural, environmental, forest, and other plant resources from plant pests. A plant pest is an insect, weed, fungus, virus, bacteria, or other organism that can directly or indirectly injure or cause damage to a plant or plant product.
For a copy the draft NAPPO strategic plan, and specific instructions for submitting comments to PPQ on the NAPPO documents, visit the NAPPO consultation website. Comments should fall into one of three categories: substantial, technical, or editorial. Please provide alternative wording and a justification for any suggested amendments.
For more information, contact PPQ’s NAPPO Technical Director, Stephanie Dubon, at email@example.com.
