ISPM-15 Certified Wood Packages for international shipments..

You will be pleased to know that we follow Best Practices and industry standards when it comes to Packaging and Woodworking for export. Wood can be easily infected with pests, for that reason, if the packaging you use is not made with wood that complies with the requirements of the ISPM15 regulation, it could be rejected for transport or even not be admitted to the port of destination. which could be a tremendous headache and incalculable losses in time and money for you. While the use of Treated Wood is a legal requirement, it is something we are pleased to do to ensure a better world. The rules surrounding the ISPM-15 mean that wood must be treated before being used to contain anything that is to be transported from one country to another. Fumigation MUST be carried out, or thermal treatment instead. Once the Heat Treatment has been done at a level that will kill anything that could be dangerous, we stamp (Without Additional Charge) the seals that certify it, and this will not only reassure you, but will also ensure entry to countries who have concerns about the importation of pests. In extreme cases of detection of pests in shipments with untreated wood, the goods can be declared in Quarantine, or be returned to the country of origin, etc.
