International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures ISPM15
International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures ISPM15 guide for regulatory wood and wood packaging in international trade. The United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) Interim Commission on Phytosanitary Measures adopted ISPM15 in March 2002. This means that countries can now decide to implement these internationally recognized import regulations to prevent the spread of wood pests.
How to Identify ISPM15 Compliant Pallets from KB Pallets
ISPM15 compliant pallets are marked with a stamp that includes the logo of the National Plant Protection Organization (NPPO), the country code, the unique registration number of the treatment provider, the HT (Heat Treatment) or MB (Methyl Bromide) mark, and the IPPC mark. This stamp is proof that the pallets have been treated and comply with international regulations. (see image above)
Repair of ISPM15 Compliant Wood Packaging Material
Following repair, the entire item of wood packaging must be re-treated and re-marked. This includes repaired, recycled and re-manufactured wood packaging material. For example, pallets marked HT that are repaired must be re heat treated in their entirety (i.e., the complete pallet). The accreditation mark of the repairer must be applied, and all previous ISPM15 marks must be removed.
