ISPM 15 is a global standard for packaging wood used for international shipments. The standard requires that wood be either heat treated to 56 degrees C to the core for 30 minutes, fumigated with Methyl Bromide to the schedule in the ISPM15 document or dielectric heated with microwave or radio frequency heating. A licensed ISPM 15 mark can be stamped on approved treated material. The ISPM standard was a treaty initially ratified in 2002 as an international effort to control the spread of invasive species by wooden packaging materials. Each year more countries are signing on the treaty.
The regulation is a living document that is being updated to address specific issues that arise or allow for new technology. Some examples of modifications, clarifications or updates in the recent past:
