Customized ISPM-15 Heat Treated Wooden Crate

In this blog, we will delve into the significance of ISPM 15 certification, the advantages it offers for international shipping, and how BlueRose Packaging ensures compliance with international standards while providing top-quality crates for your shipping needs.

What is ISPM 15?

ISPM 15, short for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15, is a global regulation developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). It mandates the treatment of wooden packaging materials to prevent the spread of pests and diseases across international borders.

Importance of ISPM 15 Heat Treated Crates

ISPM 15 heat treated wood crates play a vital role in safeguarding global trade by ensuring that wooden packaging materials comply with international phytosanitary standards. These crates undergo a specific heat treatment process, eliminating pests and pathogens, thus reducing the risk of contamination during transit.

To obtain ISPM 15 certification, wood packaging manufacturers must adhere to stringent guidelines set forth by the IPPC. This includes heat treating the wood to specific temperature and time requirements, followed by marking the crates with the official ISPM 15 stamp or mark.

Benefits of Using ISPM 15 Certified Crates

Using ISPM 15 certified crates offers numerous benefits for businesses engaged in international trade. These include:

  • Ensuring compliance with international regulations.
  • Minimizing the risk of pest infestation and disease transmission.
