Previous version - The Plant Health Management Standard is intended to assist businesses and organisations in the development of a consistent plant health management system and their responsibilities within the plant supply chain. Audits can still take place using this version of the Standard (V1.1) until 30 September 2022.
The overarching aim of this standard is to provide the management protocols required to improve plant health management systems for the plant supply chain. Based on the International Plant Protection Convention’s framework for pest risk analysis, the standard sets out the requirements for a plant health management system, including periodic reviews for the continual improvement of management actions.
