So you’ve got your Wooden Box delivered to Export from Australia and you can see that it has the ISPM 15 stamp on it, but what does it all mean?
On the left you have the IPPC Logo this is the “International Plant Protection Convention”
XX – Represents the Country that the packaging was treated in.
OOOO – These are the unique identification letters and numbers that identify who treated the packaging.
YY – This tells you what type of treatment has been done; MB Methyl Bromide or HT Heat Treatment.
There are a few links below for more information about ISPM 15 so have a look if you’d like to read a bit more…….
This is the Wikipedia explanation, buts it’s out of date as you no longer need to have the DB for debarked (its still okay to use product that has the DB, it’s just not necessary).
Feel free to ask any questions in the comments below or send an email directly to firstname.lastname@example.org, we’d be glad to have a chat to you where ever you are!
