CAPRA: the EPPO Computer Assisted PRA scheme


  • This paper is an outcome of PRATIQUE (Enhancements of Pest Risk Analysis Techniques) a research project funded by the European Union under its 7th Framework Programme.


The EPPO Secretariat has developed computer software for Pest Risk Analysis (PRA) within the EC 7th Framework Programme PRATIQUE (Enhancements of Pest Risk Analysis Techniques) and with the support of the EPPO Panels. The software, Computer Assisted PRA (CAPRA), aims to assist pest risk analysts to run the EPPO Decision-support scheme for pest risk analysis [EPPO Standard PM 5/3(5) Decision-support scheme for quarantine pests], and other decision-support schemes. It is freely avaliable on the EPPO website or on
