European Chilled Distribution

Rules apply on shipments containing wood packaging material such as pallets, crates, dunnages, drums, wood cases etc.

ISPM 15 requires that all freight shipments using any species of raw wood packaging must be fumigated or heat treated to kill insects or fungus and stamped with the approved stamp, before the shipment is allowed entry or crossing through a participating country.

The Revision of ISPM No. 15 (2009) under Annex 1,[2] requires that wood used to manufacture ISPM 15 compliant Wood Packaging must be made from debarked wood.

Products exempt from the ISPM 15 are made from alternative material, like paper, plastic or wood panel products (i.e. OSB, hardboard, and plywood).

Failure to comply can incur delays, fines and even declined entry into the country.
