ISPM 15

ispm15

ISPM 15 is the 'International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures Publication No. 15: Guidelines for Regulating Wood Packaging Material in International Trade‘.  It is the international standard for regulating the movement of timber packaging and dunnage through international trade and aims to prevent the global spread of timber pests.

This method requires the packaging/dunnage to be fumigated with Methyl Bromide under custom made fumigation sheets. It is a process that requires strict security for stamping ensuring no false applications are made. GFS are subjected to regular audits for compliance and certification on the AWPCS scheme.
