IPPC-Certified Companies
in Massachusetts

 

There are new regulations for wood packing material used for exports to the European Union and other countries.

NeLMABelow is a partial list of companies certified by the Northeastern Lumber Manufacturers Association (NeLMA) to provide wood pallets, crates and packaging that meet guidelines for international shipments. For the most up-to-date listing of companies, please call NeLMA at 207-829-6901.

The International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) has always played an important role in international trade. IPPC has encouraged countries to ensure through phytosanitary certification that their exports are not the means for introducing new pests to their trading partners.

The government agency responsible for implementing the international standard, ISPM 15, is the Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They have designated the  National Wooden Pallet & Container Association (NWPCA) as the manager of the fumigation program while the American Lumber Standard Committee manages the heat treatment program.

NWPCA accredits and monitors wood inspection agencies in the duties and responsibilities of their function. Upon completion of the fumigation inspector training program, the inspection agencies are authorized to use, and designate the use by pallet companies, of the international mark.

The new mark (shown below) is applied by paint, stencil or branding, and includes: (a) the logo for the wood inspection agency; (b) the producer code (a code assigned to your company); (c) the treatment method (methyl bromide); and (d) the country of origin. This mark must be applied to at least two sides of the pallet or container. Also required on one side is the date of application and the lot number. The stamp can only appear on pallets treated by a certified fumigator registered with an inspection agency in the NWPCA fumigation program. Any fumigator licensed by his or her state in the use of methyl bromide is eligible for participation in the fumigation program.

On September 1, 2004, Australia began accepting solid wood packaging that is ISPM 15 compliant. Australia has also placed an additional requirement that ALL WOOD FOR ANY SWPM MUST BE BARK FREE. By ISPM 15 definition, bark free requires the removal of “all bark excluding the vascular cambium, ingrown bark around knots, and bark pockets between rings of annual growth.” This requirement, which also began September 1, 2004 is mandatory. A Treatment Certificate is still required.
