IP Tools and Activities
The objectives of the IP commission are to support and facilitate implementation of IP/IPM:
- To establish a reference (framework and guidelines)
- To support any organisation or individual that seeks to implement IP in practice by developing tools that enables and supports the implementation of IP into practice (Toolbox)
- To promote IPM and IP and support steps towards practical implementation of IP and IPM undertaken by governments, NGO's, farmers organisations, companies or retailers.
- To endorse any regional organisations that wants to produce certified IP products (benchmark of regional guidelines)

Green and Yellow Lists of Plant Protection Measures
The IP commission presented in 2004 a novel way of representing the IPM approach in the logical sequence of prevention, need of control and control measures, in one table. It is called the green and yellow list of plant protection measures. It offers excellent opportunities to summarize in a concise and instructive way the status of IPM approach in a region or crop. Warmly recommended. See the example here of the Live organisation, the umbrella of IP wine producers in Oregon and Washington state, USA. This example really details the description of key pests and diseases and lists the possible measures. The IP commission supports this organisation.

IOBC-WPRS Pesticide Side Effect Database
The database on selectivity of pesticides has has been prepared jointly by the IOBC-WPRS Working Group on "Pesticides and Beneficial Organisms" and the Commission "Guidelines for Integrated Production" to assist organizations and growers in the choice of pesticides.
Database with search functions:
The database is restricted to IOBC-WPRS members
The IOBC-WPRS Commission "Guidelines for Integrated Production" benchmarks IP guidelines, on request, leading to advices for adaptation. When the guidelines sufficiently comply with the IP guidelines (both general and crop specific) IOBC-WPRS permits to use of the declaration "Produced under IOBC-WPRS IP endorsed guidelines" or to simply state the IP guidelines are endorsed by IOBC or equivalent sentences.
IOBC-WPRS does not endorse nor certify individual farmers practicing IP, but their organizations.
