FUMIGATION (For Import and Export of Commodities)

What is Fumigation?

Fumigation is a method of pest control that completely fills an area with gaseous pesticides or fumigants to suffocate or poison the pests within. It is utilized for control of pests in soil, grain, and other produce, and is also used during processing of goods to be imported or exported to prevent transfer of exotic organisms.

ISPM 15

ISPM 15 stands for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures no. 15. This standard has been developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and requires treatment of wood that has a thickness greater than 6mm and is used to transport products between countries. Its purpose is to prevent international transport and spread of insects and diseases that may negatively affect plants or ecosystems.

ISPM 15 covers all wooden packaging materials (Pallets, dunnages, crates, etc.) and requires that they be debarked, heat treated or fumigated and stamped with a mark of compliance. Failure to comply could result to the exported/imported product to be sent back to the origin country resulting to huge financial losses.
