ISPM-15 (International Phytosanitary Measure 15) is a regulation concerning treatment of wood packaging against insects. It is mandatory to treat wood packaging for export in accordance with ISPM-15. This regulation is necessary to prevent the spread of detrimental insects. Wood that has been treated in accordance with ISPM-15, is recognizable by the IPPC-sing.
EWS Belgium is an acknowledged company that can carry out ISPM-15 treatments. At the moment, the only allowed ISPM-15 treatment is a heat treatment. This means that we heat the wood up to 56°C during at least 30 minutes. This way, the insects in the wood are killed in every stage of life, including the eggs.
EWS Group can carry out an ISPM-15 treatment on:
- Wooden cases
