ASTA welcomes the decision by the Commission of Phytosanitary Measures (CPM) to develop a Systems Approach for seed as an Annex to ISPM 38 on the International Movement of Seed. The decision was made on Friday, April 5, during the CPM meeting in Rome, Italy. ASTA has long advocated for an international Systems Approach for seed. The association worked closely with a number of National Plant Protection Office’s, including USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, in supporting the development and submission of the proposal to the International Plant Protection Convention.
