ISPM 15 (International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures No. 15) is an International Phytosanitary Measure developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) that directly addresses the need to treat wood materials of a thickness greater than 6mm, used to ship products between countries – therefore it is a regulation for wood packaging material in international trade.

ISPM 15 sets out harmonized expectations for the application of treatments to render wood packaging material practically free of quarantine pests, requiring that they be debarked and then heat treated or fumigated, with a mark of compliance.

The IPPC-ISPM 15 certified PalletBiz franchisees  are permitted to produce wood packaging materials of purchased debarked and heat treated wood.
