Guidelines for Regulating

Wood Packaging Material (WPM) in the Transport of Commodities

slide2
International Plant Protection Convention

(IPPC)

  • A multilateral international treaty dealing with preventing the spread and introduction of plant pests
  • 149 Signatory governments
  • Food and Agriculture Organization (FA0) of the United Nations
purpose international standards
Purpose: International Standards

Harmonize requirements between signatory countries

Each member country still has to draft

and implement their own regulation.

National Plant Protection Organization

(NPPO)

Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) is recognized as the NPPO for the United States of America

specific components of the wood packing material standard
Specific Components of the Wood Packing Material Standard:

Products affected by International Standard

include unprocessed raw wood (hardwood/softwood)

packaging including dunnage

specific components of the wood packing material standard6
Specific Components of the Wood Packing Material Standard:
  • Wood Packing Material made entirely of processed manufactured wood (plywood, particle board, OSB, veneer) is exempt from the standard.
  • Raw Wood less than 6mm (0.24 in) in thickness is also exempt.
specific components of the ispm15 standard
Specific Components of the ISPM15 Standard

Treatment/Processing Options:

  • Heat Treatment (HT) and Fumigation withMethyl Bromide (MB) are the approved measures
  • Accepted by all signatory countries, for all types of wood (hardwood/softwood)
  • Allows for the free movement of wood packing material regardless of country of origin

Specific Components of the ISPM15 Standard cont’d:

Treatment/Processing Options:

  • Official mark on the wood – No paper certification is required.
  • No requirement for debarking except dunnage is required to be treated under approved measures or otherwise bebark free.

HEAT TREATMENT:

  • Wood Packaging Material heated to a minimum wood core temperature of 56°c for minimum of 30 minutes.
  • Required by the standard to be an official program with official marks and official oversight by the NPPO

Marking for Approved Measures (HT & MB)

XX - 000

HT or MB

Mark should contain ISO two letter Country code with unique number assigned by grading agency and the IPPC abbreviation (HT or MB)

NOTE: Where debarking is required, the letters DB should

be added to the abbreviation of the approved measure.

  • Inspection agencies confirm that heat treated wood packaging for export is properly marked
  • Maintain signed agreements with agencies
  • Maintain register of participating WP facilities
  • Agencies shall follow the ALSC Policy and “Wood Packaging Enforcement Regulations.”

Three Tier Audit Program—Heat Treatment Program
  • Inspection Agencies audit Manufacturers
    • Monthly check for: work plan compliance, review of heat chamber records, and inspection of HT lumber
  • ALSC audits Inspection Agencies
    • Monthly for: work plan compliance, consolidated reports, and Quality Control procedures
    • On-site audits of Manufacturers with Inspection Agencies
  • APHIS audits ALSC and Inspection Agencies
    • Semi-annually for compliance with MOU
    • Periodic Field Audits of Manufacturers with Inspection Agencies

Attachment A:

Typical Marks of the 26 ALSC Accredited Untreated Agencies Placed on Lumber Indicating the Lumber Has Been Heat Treated In Compliance With ISPM 15

  • Accredited agency insignia
  • HT designation signifying lumber has been heat treated to 560 C for at the core for a minimum of 30 minutes
  • Unique number assigned to the producer of the HT lumber

Attachment B:

Typical WPM Quality Marks of the 13 ALSC Accredited Agencies Placed on Wood Packaging Material Indicating WPM Has Been Heat Treated In Compliance With ISPM 15

Marks are identical to the mark shown in Annex 2 of the ISPM 15 standard with the exception the accredited agency insignia is added to the marking

notice
NOTICE!
  • You can not purchase HT lumber and apply the ISPM 15 stamp unless enrolled in the program by a grading agency.
  • You can work with a grading agency to manufacture your crates/pallets and they can apply the ISPM 15 stamp on an “on-call” basis.
use of ispm 15 compliant wpm
Use of ISPM 15 Compliant WPM
  • WPM that is marked and certified in compliance with ISPM 15 may be reused regardless of country of origin
  • ISPM 15 compliant WPM that has been repaired or remanufactured must be recertified under the HT or fumigation option

European Union (EU)

All EU member states implemented ISPM 15 effective March 1, 2005. Debarking has been suspended until January 1, 2009. ISPM 15 marking of dunnage has been delayed until December 31, 2007.

At the expense of the importer:

  • WPM that does not have the ISPM 15 stamp must be re-exported
  • WPM that has the ISPM15 stamp but is found to contain a wood boring pest must be re-exported
  • WPM that has the ISPM 15 stamp but is found with a hitchhiking pest (non wood boring) may be fumigated by APHIS/PPQ

What happens to non-compliant shipments that enter the US?

what can your business do to comply with ispm 15
What can Your Business Do to Comply with ISPM 15?
  • Ask your WPM provider if they are ISPM 15 compliant and accredited
  • Provide information on the ISPM 15 standard
  • Give them contact information regarding how to become compliant (websites, contact numbers)
  • Do a cost benefit analysis if considering alternatives to wood packaging materials
  • Be aware of US and foreign countries’ timelines for implementation
  • Realize there is a $ cost $ for noncompliance as of 9/16
