Making it fit to ship

We would like to draw your attention once again to the importance of the ISPM-15 requirements and treatment.

International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15″ (ISPM-15) was created by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) to address the international shipment of potentially contaminated solid wood materials. Its main purpose is to prevent the spread of insects and disease that could have a negative impact on plants and ecosystems as a result of solid wood packaging used in the international transport of goods.

This treatment  for solid wood packaging, such as wood pallets and packaging including recycled or refurbished units, can prevent the inconvenience and related cost of having your shipment quarantined and costs at international ports of entry or even all the cost to return the shipment.

Applicable  Products Under ISPM-15

ISPM-15 is applicable to wood; wood packaging materials such as dunnage, crates, reels, collars, and pallets; and other wooden items such as bracing.

This ISPM-15 is applicable to those countries mentioned on below website:


The ISPM15 stamp is commonly applied as an ink stamp, stencil or brand, and is made clearly visible on the exterior surface of the wood packaging.

The ISPM15 stamp must be applied to a minimum of two opposite sides of a completed wood packaging solution to certify that all solid wood has met the treatment requirement.
