Collaborative International Pesticides Analytical Council

The Collaborative International Pesticides Analytical Council (CIPAC) is an international, non-profit-oriented and non-governmental organisation devoted to:

  • promote the international agreement on methods for the analysis of pesticides and physico-chemical test methods for formulations
  • promote inter-laboratory programmes for the evaluation of test methods.

The methods are proposed by companies and are tested by laboratories all over the world. After evaluation of the results and adoption, the methods are published in the CIPAC Handbooks.

European and Mediterranean Plant Protection Organisation

The European and Mediterranean Plan Protection Organisation is an intergovernmental organisation responsible for European cooperation in plant health. Founded in 1951 by 15 European countries, EPPO now has 50 members, covering almost all countries of the European and Mediterranean region. Its objectives are to protect plants, to develop international strategies against the introduction and spread of dangerous pests and to promote safe and effective control methods.

As a Regional Plant Protection Organization, EPPO also participates in global discussions on plant health organized by FAO and the IPPC Secretariat. Finally, EPPO has produced a large number of standards and publications on plant pests, phytosanitary regulations, and plant protection products.

Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations

The?Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations creates and shares critical information about food, agriculture and natural resources in the form of global public goods. But this is not a one-way flow. We play a connector role, through identifying and working with different partners with established expertise, and facilitating a dialogue between those who have the knowledge and those who need it. By turning knowledge into action, FAO links the field to national, regional and global initiatives in a mutually reinforcing cycle. By joining forces, we facilitate partnerships for food and nutrition security, agriculture and rural development between governments, development partners, civil society and the private sector.?

International Cooperation on Harmonisation of Technical Requirements for Registration of Veterinary Medicinal Products (VICH)

VICH is a trilateral (EU-Japan-USA) programme aimed at harmonising technical requirements for veterinary product registration. VICH was officially launched in April 1996.

The role of VICH is to harmonise technical requirements for data necessary for the marketing authorisation (called 'registration' in Australia) of a veterinary medicinal product. This is achieved by developing harmonised guidelines on the studies to be submitted in a marketing authorisation application.

Typically a VICH guideline describes how a study should be conducted to satisfy quality, safety or efficacy data requirements. VICH also covers data requirements for post-marketing pharmacovigilance systems. The benefit of having harmonised guidelines is to avoid studies being duplicated or repeated. The linkages between the APVMA data guidelines and the VICH guidelines are shown in the table below.

International Programme on Chemical Safety

The International Programme on Chemical Safety (IPCS), established in 1980, is a joint programme of three cooperating organisations — WHO, ILO and UNEP, implementing activities related to chemical safety. WHO is the Executing Agency of the IPCS, whose main roles are to establish the scientific basis for safe use of chemicals, and to strengthen national capabilities and capacities for chemical safety.

World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology

The World Association for the Advancement of Veterinary Parasitology (WAAVP) is a not-for-profit organisation for scientists who study the parasites of non-human animals. The guidelines, developed by the international expert working groups of the WAAVP, assist in the international harmonisation of standards and procedures for the evaluation of veterinary parasiticides.

World Health Organization

The primary role of the?World Health Organization (WHO) is to direct and coordinate international health within the United Nations’ system.

This is done by:

  • providing leadership on matters critical to health and engaging in partnerships where joint action is needed
  • shaping the research agenda and stimulating the generation, translation and dissemination of valuable knowledge
  • setting norms and standards and promoting and monitoring their implementation
  • articulating ethical and evidence-based policy options
  • providing technical support, catalysing change, and building sustainable institutional capacity
  • monitoring the health situation and assessing health trends.
