Heat Treated ISPM 15 EXPORT TIMBER REGULATIONS
What is Heat Treated ISPM-15 and why do you need it?
Heat Treated ISPM-15 is an internationally agreed standard for the treatment of wood packaging, and was developed to protect world forests from timber pests.
For wood packaging to become compliant it is required to undergo a process of heat treatment, detailed below:
Heat Treatment (H/T): Wood packaging material is heated in a kiln at a minimum core temperature of 560C for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Once the timber has been treated it may be officially marked as ISPM15 compliant, and legible for export, your goods can be shipped around the world.
