EU requirements for wood packaging material are based on the 2002 FAO International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) n° 15.
Regulation (EU) 2016/2031 on protective measures against plant pests (“Plant Health Law”) sets the requirements for non-EU imports into the EU of wood packaging material and dunnage.
All wood packaging material and dunnage from non-EU countries must be:
either heat treated or fumigated in line with ISPM15 procedures;
officially marked with the ISPM15 stamp consisting of 3 codes (country, producer and measure applied) and the IPPC logo;
These requirements do not apply to:
wood 6mm thick or less;
wood packaging material made entirely from processed wood produced using glue, heat and pressure e.g. plywood, oriented strand board and veneer;
wood packaging material used in trade within the EU.
