Did you know that over 90% of pallets and skids used for transporting goods in the world are made from wood.
Due to the volume of wooden packaging being shipped across borders, there is an internationally agreed check to make sure there are no nasty bugs hiding in the timber which could cause devastation in vulnerable countries. The packaging standard that protects the world’s forests from disease is called the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures no. 15 (ISPM15).
Every piece of wooden packaging that is treated is stamped with an internationally recognised mark to prove the packaging item has been treated to the ISPM15 standard. This mark essentially acts as a passport for the packaging item allowing it to be confidently transported across international borders with the knowledge it does not contain wood-borne pests.
