Categorization of Commodities According to their Pest Risk (22 page(s), in English)
This standard provides criteria for national plant protection organizations (NPPOs) of importing countries on how to categorize commodities according to their pest risk when considering import requirements. This categorization should help in identifying whether further pest risk analysis is required and if phytosanitary certification is needed.
The first stage of categorization is based on whether the commodity has been processed and, if so, the method and degree of processing to which the commodity has been subjected before export. The second stage of categorization of commodities is based on their intended use after import.
Contaminating pests or storage pests that may become associated with the commodity after processing are not considered in this standard.
