Products / Heat Treated IPPC ISPM-15

Topco Pallets has been fully certified to provide its customers with IPPC ISPM-15 products.

International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM 15) is a regulation that is meant to prevent the introduction or spread of forest pests that may be contained in pallets and other wood packaging materials.

International Plant Protection Committee (IPPC) is an international plant health agreement, established in 1952, that aims to protect cultivated and wild plants by preventing the introduction and spread of pests.

Heat treating heats the wood pallet until the core temperature reaches 56 degrees Celsius for at least 30 minutes. This process is widely recognized to destroy any pests that could be harmful to forests. The wood pallet can also be fumigated, but heat treating is considered an environmentally preferable alternative.
