Book now for the international workshop on reducing the introduction of pests through the sea container pathway – 19-20 Sep, London
The Commission on Phytosanitary Measures (CPM), operating under the auspices of the UN and taking the lead on plant protection from invasive species continues to actively consider the movement of invasive pests via contamination of sea containers.
Whilst it recognises that potential regulatory requirements or changes to container cargo transport could have substantive negative knock-on effects including cost, it continues to seek practical and cost-effective solutions to reducing risks of transfer of pests and contaminants by the sea container pathway. The international workshop 19-20 September in London will be an opportunity for stakeholders to work together to ensure that next steps are indeed practical and cost-effective. ICHCA will be present, representing members and the cargo handling sector. If you would like to attend also and help place the spotlight on safety, you can apply by following the link below.
As well as plant protection professionals, the event is also open to shipping lines, container manufacturers, freight forwarders, packers, port authorities, marine terminal operators, shippers, importers and exporters.
The workshop is free to attend and is an in-person event.
The closing date for registrations is 31 July 2022
