Compliance and Accreditation’s
All Woodlands Timber Packaging timber cases and crates are supplied in accordance to the Forestry Commission and the ISPM15 compliance governed by Timcon. Timcon are a Timber Packaging and Timber Pallet Confederation that regulate the market in the UK. They ensure that all companies that use timber for export are fully accredited and adhere to EU regulations in the UK. They ensure that all Timber that is sourced from multiple suppliers across the Uk and Europe is ISPM15 compliant. At Woodlands, we source our timber from multiple suppliers across the Uk and Europe from environmentally friendly forests.
The International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures No. 15 (ISPM15) is a measure developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC). The regulation was developed to help prevent the international transport and spread of disease and insects that could negatively affect plants or ecosystems globally.
All ISPM15 timber is debarked, then heat treated or fumigated with methyl bromide to ensure no insects or diseases are spread whilst being exported.
In order to export products using timber packaging to countries outside of the EU, ISPM15 regulations are required. The mark of compliance is branded onto each side of our timber cases/crates to ensure they are clearly visible import and export officials internationally.
In addition to the branding of the ISPM15 cases we also provide our clients with the necessary paperwork and certificate to accompany them in transit. Our relationship with Timcon also means that on the rare occasion that there is problems with import officials, Timcon can directly help ourselves and our clients.
We work in accordance to the British Standard BS 1133 which is the Packaging Code Guidance for wooden boxes, cases and crates.
