Extra Treatment Service

As a responsible shipper, it is essential to ensure that your goods are not only transported efficiently but also comply with international regulations. One of these obligations is to adhere to the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM 15), which requires wood packaging materials to undergo treatment to eliminate the presence of harmful pests.

Fumigation

When it comes to pest control, fumigation is the primary measure taken to get rid of parasites, larvae, and insects. Fumigation involves filling the area or container, in case of FCL shipments, with gaseous pesticides, also known as fumigants. This process effectively eliminates pests such as wood borers and dry wood termites, preventing the transfer of exotic organisms.

Types of Fumigation

There are various types of fumigation, and IDP Cargo offers the following options:

  • Ethylene Oxide (ETO) Fumigation: This type of fumigation is required for products exported from Indonesia to Australia. It’s a special treatment for commodities made from rattan, banana, grass, bamboo, or leaf.
  • Sulphur Fumigation: This is the most common type of fumigation, and it’s sufficient for exporting goods to most destinations.

Phytosanitary Certificate

A phytosanitary certificate is an official document issued by the National Plant Protection Organization (NPPO) of the exporting country. The certificate guarantees that the plants, plant products, or other regulated articles in the shipment have been inspected and found to be free from pests and diseases. It also confirms that the shipment meets the phytosanitary requirements of the importing country, as outlined in the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC).

The IPPC is an international treaty that aims to protect plant health and prevent the spread of pests and diseases across borders. It provides a framework for phytosanitary measures that countries can use to protect their agriculture and natural resources.

ISPM 15

The International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM 15) is a crucial regulation that governs the use of Wood Packaging Material (WPM) in international trade. The ISPM 15 sets out specific requirements that all WPM must meet before being utilized in global trade. The regulation is enforced by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).

In accordance with the ISPM 15, all WPM must undergo treatment to ensure that it is free of bark, insects, and worms. Additionally, the wood used must have a reasonable moisture content. The regulation applies to all wood packaging, including crating and fastening materials used within a container.

As more and more countries adopt the FAO recommendation, it is essential to ensure that your WPM meets the standards set out by the ISPM 15. IDP Cargo provides top-notch materials that have undergone third-party certification at an affordable cost per inspected item fee.

By adhering to the ISPM 15, you can ensure that your WPM is free of harmful pests, which could pose a significant threat to global ecosystems. Choose IDP Cargo for all your WPM needs, and rest assured that your goods will be transported in compliance with international regulations.
