Dear Members and Colleagues

 

ISTA Seed Health Committee Official Method Review 


The Seed Health Method Validation Programme requires that methods approved as Official Methods should be reviewed every 5 years to ensure their continuing effectiveness and suitability. Official Seed Health Testing Methods are found in the International Rules for Seed Testing 2012, Annexe to Chapter 7, Seed Health Testing Methods. There are currently 11 ISTA Official Seed Health Testing Methods that are now due for review (listed in Table 1). This is the third review for Methods 7-001 and 7-002, Methods 7-015 to 7-018 and the first review for Methods 7-022 to 7-024. Table 1 lists the actions taken since the last review as a result of feedback received. The ISTA Seed Health Committee (SHC) would like to receive your feedback on the current Method Sheets as part of the review process.

* Key words could be specificity, sensitivity, reproducibility, alternative reagents etc.

** High or low priority

 

 

3. Is there a need to respond to a technological change in one or more methods? If yes explain in a few words.



 

4. Most methods are not validated for use on treated seed. Do you have a need to test treated seeds for these pathogens? If yes please give a brief explanation.



 

Please note no method modification (except editorial) will be made as a result of this review. A method will either be accepted for a further five years or recommended for withdrawal due to the evidence submitted. Method modifications can only be approved if a full collaborative test has been submitted to the Method Validation Programme and approved by the SHC or depending on the modification when a convincing argument and supporting documentation have been supplied and approved by the SHC.


PLEASE RETURN TO THE ISTA SECRETARIAT (tcom@ista.ch) BY 15 April 2013

YOUR HELP WITH THIS REVIEW IS MUCH APPRECIATED.
