COLEACP and NPPOs share the results of an internal audit system

A recent virtual meeting with NPPOs focused on the establishment of an internal audit system, supported by COLEACP’s Fit For Market SPS programme. The internal audit system concerns support for the preparation and implementation of dossiers (systemic approaches) submitted to the EU’s DG SANTE, in relation to the requirements of the new EU Plant Health Regulation for the control of quarantine pests on certain fruit and vegetables.

Several directors and representatives of NPPOs from many countries, including Benin, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Dominican Republic, Eswatini, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Madagascar, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Togo, Uganda and Zimbabwe, and a representative of the International Plant Protection Convention took part in the meeting. The interactive session encouraged the exchange of information and experiences among the participants and with the COLEACP team. Further e-meetings will be proposed to our NPPO partners in the coming weeks.
