What Is Ippc Heat Treatment?
If you’re new to export, you might have heard the acronym IPPC, but not be sure what it actually means. The International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures, publication number 15 - Regulation of wood packaging material (WPM) in international trade.
The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) is designed to stop the spread of wood pests when wood products are used for international export. IPPC usually refers to the international standard now used, which requires wood used for export to be debarked, heat treated, and stamped to show it is suitable for international shipping. This is commonly known as the ISPM-15 treatment standard. We offer both new ISPM 15 compliant, and used ISPM 15 compliant pallets for sale.

The Pallet Guys-Houston will only ever provide fully compliant heat treated pallets, including used pallet options. There are rules regarding the use and re-use of heat treated pallets, to make sure that they remain safe. These regulations basically mean that heat treated pallets which have not required any repairs can be reused without any further heat treatment - however, if there is a repair on the pallet, this must be done using heat treated wood. If the repair is substantial and means that over 30% of the wood on the pallet is replaced then the entire pallet must be heat treated again.
