EPPO Guidelines on Pest Risk Analysis are intended to be used by National Plant Protection Organizations, in their capacity as bodies responsible for the establishment of phytosanitary regulations and the application of phytosanitary measures while respecting the requirements of the International Plant Protection Convention, ISPM no. 1 (Phytosanitary principles for the protection of plants and the application of phytosanitary measures in international trade), ISPM no. 2 (Framework for pest risk analysis) and ISPM no. 11 (Pest risk analysis for quarantine pests including analysis of environmental risks and living modified organisms). They are also used by the technical bodies of EPPO to formulate recommendations on phytosanitary measures to the National Plant Protection Organizations.

EPPO Standards on pest risk analysis provide detailed guidance on the analysis of risk from individual pests for a defined area, in relation to their potential status as quarantine pests. The standards are based on the many years of experience of EPPO experts in the EPPO Panel on Pest Risk Analysis development, EPPO Panel on Phytosanitary Measures and EPPO Panel on Invasive Alien Species, who have assessed the status of pests as candidates for the EPPO A1 and A2 lists of pests recommended for regulation, and who have analysed the criteria used for this purpose. They conform to ISPM no. 2 (Framework for pest risk analysis) and ISPM no. 11 (Pest risk analysis for quarantine pests including analysis of environmental risks and living modified organisms) and use the terms of ISPM no. 5 (Glossary of phytosanitary terms).

Three EPPO Standards on pest risk analysis have already been approved and published. Each standard is numbered in the style PM 5/1 (1), meaning an EPPO Standard on Phytosanitary Measures (PM), in series no. 5 (Guidelines on pest risk analysis), in this case standard no. 1, first version. The existing standards are:

PM 5/1(1) Guidelines on pest risk analysis (PRA). No. 1. Checklist of information required for pest risk analysis (PRA). Bulletin OEPP/EPPO Bulletin 23, 191–198.

PM 5/2 (2). No. 2 Pest risk analysis on detection of a pest in an imported consignment. Bulletin OEPP/EPPO, Bulletin 32, 235–239.

PM 5/3(5) Decision-support scheme for quarantine pests – version 2011. This standard is published on the EPPO website (http://archives.eppo.org/EPPOStandards/pra.htm).

A computer program CAPRA has been developed by the EPPO Secretariat in the framework of the European Union 7th framework program protect PRATIQUE (Grant agreement No 212 459) and with the support of the EPPO Panels. This program is based on the latest version of the Decision-support scheme for quarantine pests.

This software aims to assist pest risk analysts in running the EPPO decision-support scheme for Pest Risk Analysis. It includes links to useful datasets, examples and guidance to ensure consistency in performing pest risk analysis. It can be downloaded at http://capra.eppo.org/.

Two new standards are published in this issue.
