ISPM15 Explained

ISPM stands for International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures. It was developed by the IPPC, or International Plant Protection Convention, as a means of dictating that wooden materials thicker than 6mm which are used in international shipments should be treated in order to prevent the spread of insects and diseases that could affect country’s eco-systems and plants.

ISPM 15 applies to all types of wood packaging materials, including crates, cases and pallets, and requires that they are heat-treated and stamped to show that they are compliant – as the timber from Holmes Mann is. They can also be methyl-bromide-fumigated. The compliance stamp is often called the ‘wheat stamp’.
