The ISPM 15 packing-regulations

Safe and Sustainable Transportation with ISPM 15-Compliant Wood Pallets

In the world of international trade and logistics, packaging regulations play a crucial role. Particularly noteworthy are the ISPM 15 packaging regulations, which apply globally to the treatment of wood packaging materials such as wooden pallets. As experts in the logistics industry, we provide comprehensive information and solutions to meet these important standards.

What is ISPM 15?

ISPM 15, the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15, sets global regulations for the treatment of wood packaging materials in international trade. The primary purpose of this regulation is to prevent the spread of pests and diseases through wood packaging materials, such as wooden pallets.

Treatment and Marking According to ISPM 15

Heat Treatment and Fumigation: Wood packaging materials must be treated either by heat treatment (HT) or fumigation with methyl bromide (MB) to ensure they are free of pests.

Marking: After treatment, the wooden pallets and other wood packaging must be marked with a special ISPM 15 seal. This seal is a globally recognized indication that the wood material has been properly treated.

Conclusion ISPM-15

Wood pallets that have been appropriately fumigated or treated and display an IPPC stamp are wood pallets that meet international standards for trade in wood products.


The ISPM 15 regulations were developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) to control the spread of pests and diseases through international trade in wood products. Wood pallets and wood packaging materials may contain pests and pathogens that can be introduced into different countries and pose a risk to local agriculture and forests.


Under ISPM 15 regulations, all wood packaging used for international trade must undergo a specific treatment to kill pests and pathogens. The most commonly used treatment method is heat treatment (short-term heating to at least 56 °C in the core of the wood for at least 30 minutes). Other methods such as chemical treatments are also allowed.


Wood pallets that have been appropriately treated and meet the ISPM 15 standard must be marked with a special IPPC stamp. This stamp indicates that the pallet meets international standards, preventing the transport of pests and pathogens.


If you want to use wooden pallets to transport goods internationally, it is important to make sure they meet the ISPM 15 standard and have an IPPC stamp. This will help avoid customs delays and potential problems when importing into other countries.
