UBEECO™ Packaging Solutions has been a member of the Australian Wood Packaging Certification Scheme since its inception and as such we are able to assist and meet all your ISPM15 requirements.
ISPM 15 is the International Standards for Regulating Wood Packaging in International Trade. ISPM 15 was developed in an attempt to reduce the risk of the introduction and or spread of pests associated with timber packaging material.
All wood packaging material used for export must undergo either heat treatment or fumigation.
To verify that treatment has occurred and to provide traceability to the country of origin, an internationally recognised ISPM 15 certification is applied to the treated wood packaging.
Only certified treatment providers and/or wood packaging manufacturers under AWPCS can apply the internationally recognised certification mark.
There are some products that due to their low risk are exempt for ISPM15; these include plywood, particle board, veneer peeler core, wine barrels, and sawdust.
