    What is ISPM 15?​

    ISPM 15 stands for International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures number 15 which is an International Phytosanitary Measure developed by the International Plant Protection Convention. It states that wood materials of a thickness greater than 6 mm must be treated to ship products between countries. This also applies to any wooden pallets used.

    ISPM 15 certified

    Acorn Packaging can create custom wooden packaging that is ISPM 15 compliant. As we are registered as a participant in the UK Wood Packaging Material Marking Program, we can apply the official mark of the program to packaging manufactured or repaired on our premises. Use of the mark certifies that the packaging has been manufactured or repaired in the UK and meets the prescribed standards.
