Heat Treating (Export Pallets)

As of January 2004, all exported wood products to other countries need to be compliant with the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) international standard ISPM 15 to regulate wood and wood packaging in international trade. Pallet Logistics of America leads the industry in providing this service right in our own manufacturing facility, providing one of the only Heat-Treatment programs in North Texas. Our guarantee of this certification of compliance is essential to ensure cross border and international flow of goods for our customers. Whether you are shipping to other countries today or plan to in the future, look no further than Pallet Logistics of America for all your export pallet and container needs.

ISPM-15 Requirements
Compliance with ISPM-15 for wood packaging materials allows for two treatment options:

Heat Treatment (HT): Wood packaging material should be heated in a schedule that achieves a minimum core temperature of 56oC (133oF) for a minimum of 30 minutes. The American Lumber Standards Committee administers the U.S. certification program for heat treatment

Methyl Bromide (MB) Fumigation: The wood packaging material should be fumigated with methyl bromide. NWPCA has been tasked by the U.S. Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service to administer the fumigation program.

NOTE: ISPM 15 requirements apply to all species of coniferous (softwood) and non-coniferous (hardwood) packaging materials. Hardwood is no longer exempt.
