There are strict standards that need to be met with your packaging if you Export From Australia.
You’ll know if your product is sterilised and certified as in most cases you’ll find a stamp, like the one below, on the actual packaging it’s self;
This is called an ISPM 15 Certification. The ISPM stands for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures. If you didn’t already know, having this stamp on your packaging will allow you to reuse it for more exporting!
The Australian Quarantine and Inspection Services requires that all packaging made from wood is sterilized, fumigated or preservative immunised. Anyone of these processes prevents the spread of wood pests and diseases.
If you’d like to learn more about this marking and what the details of the stamp mean check out this post What Do The Details On The ISPM 15 Stamp Mean?
