In 2002 the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) adopted ISPM 15 which is the International Standards on Phytosanitary Measures. ISPM15 requires chemical or heat treatment of internationally shipped solid wood packaging. Check with the countries you export to concerning their regulations.
Dodd Saw Mills. Inc. has installed a Heat Treatment unit from SII Dry Kilns that meets the ISPM15 requirements and can provide heat treated pallets if requested.
Dodd Saw Mills. Inc. has contracted with Timber Products Inspection to certify the Heat Treatment Unit and provide monthly conformance audits. This entire procedure allows Dodd Saw Mills. Inc. to meet the export shipping requirements of ISPM15.
