What is ISPM-15?
ISPM 15 is the main regulation that applies to the international transport of wood packaging material (WPM), such as wooden shipping crates. This regulation comes from the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC), a division of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of The United Nations. ISPM stands for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures, and ISPM 15 defines the processes to reduce the risk of introducing or spreading invasive species of pests through the use of wood packaging material.
