Welcome to the North American Plant Protection Organization (NAPPO)
The North American Plant Protection Organization is the phytosanitary standard-setting organization for North America, recognized in the original North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) and in the recently ratified United States, Mexico and Canada Free Trade Agreement (USMCA). NAPPO was created in 1976 as a regional organization in accordance to Article IX of the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). NAPPO provides a forum for public and private sectors in Canada, the United States and Mexico to collaborate in the regional protection of plant resources and the environment while facilitating safe trade. Plant protection and trade facilitation are achieved through the development and implementation of science-based standards and related plant protection activities directed toward preventing the introduction and spread of regulated plant pests.
