ISPM 15 Exempt

ISPM BugInternational Standards for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15) is an international measure developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that directly addresses the need to treat wood used in pallets and shipping cases, that are shipped between countries to prevent the spread of disease, organisms and insects that could negatively affect plants or ecosystems.

There are now over 170 countries worldwide signed up to ISPM 15.

It is also now being policed at most borders and the EEC is currently investigating whether to implement the controls across inter European borders in 2015.

PALLITE® is exempt, as the fibreboard making process eliminates mould, fungi, infestation and insects.
