Is your wooden packaging in compliance with ISPM 15?

Let’s be prepared…


At its core

Globalization and increased international trade flow have led to non-autochthonous animal and plant materials being distributed around the world. The organisms in wood can be parasitic, that can lead to diseases in plants and plant products. With the use of the ISPM15 regulations one tries to prevent the spread of non-autochtonous parasites.

The principle:

Keeping nature in balance!


A higher goal

The Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) is the originator of ISPM15 and a specialized agency of the United Nations that leads international efforts to defeat hunger. Our goal is to achieve food security for all and make sure that people have regular access to enough high-quality food to lead active, healthy lives. With over 194 member states, FAO works in over 130 countries worldwide. We believe that everyone can play a part in ending hunger.

ispm15 heat treatment


First (expansive) choice in protection

A ISPM15 approved method. Since 2015 is heat treatment (HT) the only treatment that can be used for common application. Wood packaging material must be heated in accordance with a specific time–temperature schedule that achieves a minimum temperature of 56 °C for a minimum duration of 30 continuous minutes throughout the entire profile of the wood (including at its core). Various energy sources or processes may be suitable to achieve these parameters. For example, kiln-drying, heat-enabled chemical pressure impregnation, microwave or other treatments may all be considered heat treatments provided that they meet the heat treatment parameters specified in this standard.
