UNUnited Nations Economic Commission for Europe


Commercial quality standards for agricultural produce are developed and approved by the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe through its Working Party on Agricultural Quality Standards. These international standards facilitate trade, encourage high-quality production, improve profitability and protect consumer interests. They are used by governments, producers, traders, importers and exporters, as well as international organizations. They cover a wide range of agricultural products, including fresh fruit and vegetables, dry and dried produce, seed potatoes, meat, cut flowers, eggs and egg products.

The Explanatory Brochure on the Standard for Sweet Peppers has been developed to harmonize the interpretation of the Standard, thereby facilitating international as well as national trade. It addresses producers and traders, as well as inspection authorities. It corresponds to the latest edition of the UNECE Standard for Sweet Peppers (FFV-28), which was officially adopted in November 2009. Subsequent revisions to the Standard will be placed on the website at: www.unece.org/trade/agr/standard/fresh/FFV-Standards.htm

All members of the United Nations can participate on an equal footing in the activities of the Working Party on Agricultural Quality Standards.
