What Does ISPM 15 Certified Mean?

fragile item in wooden crate

When it comes to shipping objects internationally, most countries require these items to be packaged in wooden crates. Unfortunately many packing and shipping companies in Boston don’t provide international shipping via wooden crates because they aren’t ISPM 15 certified. Luckily, our packing and shipping company in the greater Boston area is certified, which means you can get your items to where they need to go quickly and efficiently.

What is ISPM 15 Certified?

International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures is a measure put in place to prevent the spread of diseases and insects that often tend to hitch a ride between countries during international shipping. Wooden boxes that are greater than 6mm thick (which is what we use here at Extreme Packing Solutions) need to therefore be heat treated and fumigated with methyl bromide to kill off any lingering viruses or organic matter than could harm foreign ecosystems. This certification is also required for wooden pellets, crates, dunnages and other wooden packaging materials.
