Here at Conquest Joinery, we supply heat treated pallets to suit full ISPM15 (International Standard for Phytosanitary Materials No. 15) regulations. Upon delivery, full documents will be provided and all products will be stencilled with the country code, treatment code, unique registration number and the forestry commission number – as shown below.
Heat treated pallets that fit ISPM15 are a legal requirement if you are exporting the wooden pallets in the EU, North America, Canada, Mexico, China, Korea, Australia and New Zealand, to prevent the spread of wood boring insects crossing borders.
ISPM15 (International Standard for Phytosanitary Measure No.15) is the internationally agreed standard for the treatment of all timber pallets and packaging made from solid wood. This heat treatment is necessary to eradicate any infestations held within the timber and is required to be carried out on all exported goods to the countries stated above. An increasing number of countries are also requesting this treatment on imported goods and ISPM15 is the process to prove this treatment has been carried out. All our products that receive this treatment are fully certificated to aid passage through customs and to ensure you that the products you are receiving are of good quality.
The scope of ISPM15 is continuing to change and businesses using timber packaging must remain vigilant to avoid the risk of non-compliance. Please make sure that you receive the required certificates when buying heat treated pallets.
