A ISPM15 approved method. Since 2015 is heat treatment (HT) the only treatment that can be used for common application. Because of the globalization and increase of international trade flow has led to non-autochtonous animal and plant material being distributed around the world, the organisms in wood can be parasitic. These parasites can lead to diseases in plants and plant products. With the use of the ISPM15 regulations we prevent the spread of non-autochthonous parasites.

First (expansive) choice in protection

One of the primary requirements of ISPM 15 is the heat treatment of wood packaging materials, such as pallets, crates, and dunnage, to ensure that any potential pests or pathogens present in the wood are killed. This treatment is often referred to as “ISPM 15 heat treatment” or “heat treatment for ISPM 15 compliance.”

The specific heat treatment requirements outlined by ISPM 15 include:

Temperature: The wood must be heated to a minimum core temperature of 56°C (132.8°F) for at least 30 minutes. This temperature and duration are sufficient to eliminate most pests and diseases that could be present in the wood.

Certification: After heat treatment, the wood packaging materials must be properly marked with an approved and recognizable stamp or mark that indicates compliance with ISPM 15 standards. This marking certifies that the wood has undergone the required treatment.

Regulations: ISPM 15 is recognized internationally and is implemented by many countries to regulate the movement of wood packaging materials across borders. Any wood packaging materials that do not comply with ISPM 15 requirements could be subject to quarantine or other regulatory measures upon entering a new country.

If you’re involved in international trade and deal with wood packaging materials, it’s essential to ensure that your materials comply with ISPM 15 standards to avoid potential delays and issues at customs. Keep in mind that regulations and requirements can evolve, so it’s a good practice to stay updated with the latest guidelines from your country’s plant protection agency or relevant international organizations.


heat treatment is not always necessary...


A direct solution, for immidiate exportation

Presswood pallets are made of the ‘patented material’. For the INKA Presswood pallets, dried wood chips are compression-moulded under pressure and heat. They can be used as a space-saving substitution for wooden pallets and they are extremely suitable for use as export pallets, as they are not covered by the regulations for solid wood. Presswood pallets are regarded as “processed wood” as defined by ISPM15/NIMF15, which is why they constitute the perfect single-trip pallets for problem-free export to all countries worldwide!
