Approved Treatment Process

Under ISPM-15, wood packaging materials must undergo an approved treatment process to ensure they are free from harmful organisms. The most common treatment is heat treatment, where the wood is subjected to specific temperature and time conditions that render any pests or pathogens inactive. Another approved treatment method is fumigation using methyl bromide, although its use has become less common due to environmental concerns.

Safeguarding Global Trade

Heat treatment, recognised as one of the most effective and environmentally friendly methods, is widely adopted in the international shipping industry. The process involves exposing wooden packaging materials to specific temperatures for a designated period. These conditions are meticulously calculated to ensure the complete elimination of any pests, pathogens, or insect larvae that might be harborer within the wood.

Another ISPM-15 approved treatment method is fumigation using methyl bromide. While once widely used, the utilization of methyl bromide has gradually declined due to mounting environmental concerns. Methyl bromide is an effective fumigant that penetrates wooden materials to eliminate pests. However, it is also an ozone-depleting substance with adverse impacts on the environment and human health.

ISPM-15: Ensuring Biosecurity in International Shipping

ISPM-15, or the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15, is an internationally recognized standard developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). Its primary objective is to prevent the spread of pests and diseases that can be transported through wood packaging materials used in international trade. Specifically, ISPM-15 outlines the requirements for the treatment of wooden crates, pallets, and other packaging materials to eliminate any potential threats posed by wood-borne pests.

Synergy Between Shires Removal Group and ISPM-15

When working with Shires Removal Group to move crates internationally, adherence to ISPM-15 is a top priority. The company ensures that all wooden packaging materials used in their shipping operations comply with the standards set forth by ISPM-15. This commitment to biosecurity not only facilitates the smooth movement of goods across borders but also contributes to global efforts to prevent the unintentional spread of harmful pests and diseases.

By collaborating with certified treatment facilities and staying up-to-date with evolving international regulations, Shires Removal Group guarantees that their clients’ shipments meet all necessary requirements.
