International Standards for Wood Shipping

Meet International Packaging Regulations with Lamar Packaging Systems

As a leading manufacturer of wood crates and packaging solutions, Lamar Packaging Systems specializes in creating customized crates, pallets, and containers that meet the critical ISPM-15 and IPPC-15 international standards. With over 20 years of experience supporting major industries like aerospace, defense, energy, and electronics, we understand the stringent requirements for properly treating and marking wood materials to prevent the spread of pests and plant diseases across borders.

Gain Peace of Mind with Compliant International Packaging

When shipping products overseas, failing to meet ISPM-15 or IPPC-15 rules can lead to serious delays, fines, or even destruction of shipments. However, our expert team makes compliance simple by using certified heat treatment and fumigation methods endorsed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). We also properly mark finished crates and containers to clearly show they fulfill all necessary phytosanitary regulations for export.

The ISPM-15 Standard: What Businesses Need to Know

ISPM-15 refers to the globally adopted standard overseen by the IPPC that regulates wood packaging materials (WPMs) like pallets, dunnage, crates, and reels. It aims to prevent the introduction and spread of dangerous pests and diseases that could severely impact agriculture, ecosystems, and economies abroad. To meet ISPM-15 rules, all WPMs must undergo:

  • Heat treatment to 56°C for 30 minutes
  • Methyl bromide (MB) fumigation
  • Other approved treatments

WPMs must also bear a special IPPC compliance stamp or “bug stamp” certifying they have undergone proper phytosanitary processing. At Lamar, we integrate these pivotal ISPM-15 requirements into all of our international packaging solutions.
