What is ISPM 15?

ISPM-15 is an internationally recognized regulation and certification program for wood packaging materials that guarantees that products such as wooden crates, wood pallets and other wood products have undergone treatments to prevent the spread of pests, insects and disease.


The ISPM-15 process helps to protect local ecosystems from pests and diseases that can be spread through wood packaging materials. It is important to ensure that pallets are treated correctly and meet the ISPM-15 standards in order to protect the environment and ensure safe international trade. The program ensures that wood materials have met the required standards of phytosanitary measures and have been properly marked with the ISPM-15 stamp or other marks.

The importance of the ISPM 15 certification, in Canada and beyond

The regulation of wood packaging materials is crucial for international shipments to prevent the spread of pests and diseases. The International Plant Protection Convention oversees the use of treatments such as heat treatment or methyl bromide fumigation to ensure that solid wood materials, including wooden pallets, crates, load boards, and even particle board, meet ISPM 15 standards.

Suppliers like us must apply the proper marks or stamps to indicate compliance with this international treaty, and inspections may be conducted by the National Plant Protection Organization of the country of origin.

By following these phytosanitary measures, businesses and consumers can trust that their wood product shipments are safe and free from harmful pests and diseases, even when using materials like wood wool or shavings. Thus, it's crucial to purchase wood packaging materials that meet ISPM-15 standards on a regular basis to ensure compliance with these measures.

The wood pallets are heated to a minimum core temperature of 56 degrees Celsius for at least 30 minutes as part of a heat treatment process, which is mandatory technique used to meet this specification.

But with so many different sizes and types available, it can be hard for buyers to know which is best for their needs.

Generally speaking, wooden pallets come in standard sizes like 48x40 inches or 48x48 inches – but other custom sizes can also be ordered depending on individual needs. In terms of design features, most wooden pallets have reinforced stringers (the horizontal boards) along the top and bottom edges that help keep them stable while carrying heavy loads.

This option involves breaking down the wooden material and turning it into mulch or compost which can later be used for landscaping purposes.
