High Standards

The International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) 15 sets out rules and regulations regarding the movement of wood products internationally. The purpose of these rules and regulations is to prevent the spread of pests and diseases from one country to another via imported products. One of the rules states that any wooden packaging material which has dimensions greater than 200mm x 100mm x 6mm, must be heat treated. The purpose of heat treating the wood is to eliminate pests and diseases from the wood. 

Custom Crating Service


ISPM 15 primarily deals with the treatment of wood packaging products to prevent the international spread of pests. Until 2010 there were two acceptable methods of treatment; heat treatment and methyl bromide chemical treatment.

Although methyl bromide was quite effective it was banned in the EU in 2010 as an ozone-depleting substance that is also dangerous to humans. Some older wooden packaging may have the MB mark for methyl bromide which is acceptable to use, but crates after the date of the decision shouldn’t be treated chemically.

Heat treatment requires that the wood is heated through to the core at 56 °C for a minimum of thirty minutes.
