Influenza Virus Traceability Mechanism (IVTM)

The IVTM is an electronic, internet-based system that records the transfer and movement of PIP biological materials into, within and to parties outside the WHO GISRS. The purpose of the system is to allow users to see where PIP biological materials have been sent.

The IVTM increases the transparency of GISRS activities by allowing users to track the transfers of PIP biological materials. It also enables users to see the results of analyses and tests carried out with them.
