HEAT TREATMENT

Waterstone Holdings Heat Treating

 

We heat treat most pallets and boxes to ISPM 15 standard.
Ready for export!

WHAT IS ISPM 15 STANDARD?

ISPM 15 is the International Standards for Phytosanitary (healthy plants/wood) Measures No. 15 - Regulation
of wood packaging material in international trade.
It represents the first international commodity based standard and sets out criteria for regulating wood packaging material used in international trade (exporting)

WHY WATERSTONE USES HEAT TREATMENT...

Heat treatment is environmentally friendly.
Zero chemicals or residues, so no product contamination.
The fumigation chemical currently used by many, Methyl Bromide, is due to be banned internationally in 2015.
Methyl Bromide fumigation is already banned in the EU, and has been since 2010.
All pallets that we heat treat are stamped with our internationally recognised certification mark ready for exporting.

WHAT DOES ISPM 15 STANDARD MEAN TO ME?

If you use wood packaging material in the export of commodities to countries that have implemented ISPM 15, you need to ensure that the wood packaging in the consignment complies with the standard.

WHAT IS ISPM 15 COMPLIANT WOOD PACKAGING?

ISPM 15 is wood packaging that has been either heat treated or fumigated with methyl bromide to the specification given in ISPM 15 and bears the internationally recognised certification mark. Only certified treatment providers and/or wood packaging manufacturers can apply the internationally recognised certification mark.
Waterstone Holdings is a registered treatment provider member of the Australian Wood Packaging Certification Scheme (AWPCS) Register.
