International Standards for Fumigation
The two Primary International Standards that are required for fumigation procedures have been implemented to Govern the quarantine services to International countries.ISPM 15 standard applies to all countries exporting to any country.AQIS standard applies to all countries exporting to Australia. These standards prescribe the technical specifications of fumigation work that the fumigator has to strictly comply to. When taken together with the criterion enforced by our local Quarantine officials, these form the basis of a system to ascertain the condition of Incoming Cargo and whether they pose any quarantine threat.

What is ISPM 15?
ISPM 15 (International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures, Publication No.15) is the compliance guidelines that regulate the treatment of wood packaging materials (including dunnages) in International Exports; it qualifies the phytosanitary measures required to lessen the spread of Quarantine pests. ISPM 15, as with other ISPMs, was developed by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) which addresses plant quarantine on behalf of the United Nations Food & Agricultural Organisation (FAO).
What does Wood Packaging Material ( WPM ) refer to?
Refers to raw wood packaging material (both softwood and hardwood); does not include processed wood such as plywood, strandboard, chipboard etc.
What are the Requirements of ISPM15?
This is the most widespread fumigation service required by persons engaging in international commerce. As long as WPM is present within the cargo, or within an individual shipping container being sent abroad, you will need to comply with the ISPM 15 standard. This requires the services of a suitably qualified professional fumigator, who has been authorized to provide the treatment by the AVA.The treatment comprises fumigation using methyl bromide, following which all WPM has to be marked with the ISPM 15 Mark. A Fumigation Certificate accompanies the shipment on its journey. Upon arrival at the port of entry in another country, quarantine officials will check for compliance to ISPM 15. Non-compliance can result in the cargo being sent back, or destroyed.ISPM 15 is being implemented progressively around the world. Already, its effects have been felt in exports headed towards Canada and the United States where quarantine officials are exceptionally vigilant. The case of North America emphasizes the need to select a suitable fumigation company whose internal controls ensure a fumigation result which will not delay the consignment.
