International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15) is an International Phytosanitary Measure developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC)
This is a regulation that requires heat treatment (also known as pest control) on wooden pallets. It applies to transportation between the European Union , United States and the rest of the world. ISPM15 regulations apply to all solid wood packaging material (wood pallets, wooden collars and wooden boxes).
How can you tell if WPM has been treated?
All treated Wood will have the IPPC mark, as shown below:
From January 1st 2021, we will have to meet ISPM 15 international standards for every pallet entering and exiting Malaysia because we classify it as a third-party country. In terms of transportation, perhaps nothing is more important than humble wooden pallets. Millions of items can be shipped every day.
However, if left untreated, it can also become a breeding ground for pests, pollutants and diseases. Therefore, to avoid the risk of spreading pests and diseases worldwide, ISPM 15 was created.
JSX Lab provide heat-treated for Pallet, Wooden Crate, Wooden Box, Pine Wood and Mixed Hardwood etc.. to meet ISPM15 standards. Therefore, starting from January 1, 2021, you don’t have to worry about the relevant regulations of our approved heat-treated wooden pallets, We have simplified the process for you, which means that our pallets can meet your needs for transportation abroad.
