ISPM15 Protection of International Ecosystems

The global transport of wood packaging has an increased risk for pests to be found in untreated wood.

Left unchallenged this could not only endanger the tree population of a country it could threaten our whole ecosystem.

ISPM15 heat treatment carried out on timber packaging products is natural and environmentally friendly; it does not use any chemicals.

Heat treatment (HT) involves placing timber products in a container where the wood is subjected to a continued heat source.

The core temperature of the wood must reach a minimum of 56°C for a minimum 30 minutes. This eliminates all harmful organisms likely to attack standing plants.
