Ensure Compliance with Certified Heat Treating
INTERNATIONAL REGULATION – ISPM 15
Due to international regulations, heat treatment is an increasing concern for companies shipping products using wood pallets. The international export standard, ISPM 15, requires that all wood packaging material be heat-treated at a core temperature of 56 degrees Celsius for a minimum of 30 minutes. This regulation eliminates the presence of pests found in wood thereby protecting crops and forests in other parts of the world.
WHY CHOOSE HEAT-TREATED OVER CHEMICALLY-TREATED PALLETS
Heat treatment is the safest method to comply with ISPM 15. Here in the United Arab Emirates, the Ministry of Environment and Water is strongly advocating heat treatment of pallets to be a much safer alternative as compared to chemically treated pallets.
