The Workshop will tackle some of the main inspection challenges faced by EPPO member countries, among which is early detection of outbreaks and of infected consignments, as well as the difficulty of inspection of wooden packaging material to ensure compliance with ISPM15.
During the Workshop, an overview of results from various projects on early detection methods will be given. Tools developed for early detection will be presented and there will also be possibilities for demonstrations and hand on sessions. This is the case in particular for Genie/LAMP tests developed in the framework of EMPHASIS and H2020 EU funded project and for remote sensing and the use of drones.
