Heat treated pallets compliant with ISPM 15 for your export

Safely transport goods outside the EU

Are you transporting goods outside the European Union or to the Canary Islands, Portugal, Norway or Turkey? Then your wooden packaging must comply with the international standard ISPM 15 as of January 2021, since the UK has officially left the EU as of 31st January 2020. Following the transition period a formal trade agreement has been reached. 

With CHEP’s superior scale and depth of expertise, we are well positioned to support you as a customer through the required changes. We have been proactively engaging with our customers both in the UK and EU and making the necessary investments to identify non-compliant pallets and heat treat them again when needed. 

To that end, we have developed the CHEP PLUS PS service for all pallets used for transport outside the EU.
So you can keep on transporting your products between the EU and the UK, on ISPM 15 compliant pallets.

Statement: UK Government, Defra, 17th March 2021.

Since 1st January 2021, all wood packaging material (WPM) moving between Great Britain and the EU, and from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, has needed to be treated and appropriately marked in compliance with international standards (ISPM 15). Defra can confirm that this remains the case: all WPM moving between Great Britain and the EU, and from Great Britain to Northern Ireland, must be treated and marked in compliance with ISPM 15. This is in line with international requirements for trade and is in place to protect both the EU and UK from potential harmful plant pests and diseases.

What is ISPM 15?

ISPM is the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures. ISPM 15 is a worldwide rule designed to prevent the spread of plant diseases and pests via wooden packaging material. To this end, they must be heat-treated according to specific guidelines and marked as 'Heat Treated'. 

What is CHEP PLUS PS service?

Customers who need ISPM 15-compliant pallets for their exports can request them from CHEP. In recent years, we have invested heavily in drying chambers, which provide the necessary heat treatments to wooden pallets, in full compliance with regulations. Heat treated pallets, compliant with ISPM 15, are always clearly marked with our own IPPC stamp.

Pallets that have undergone the CHEP PLUS PS service follow the strict ISPM 15 norms and standards and can be used for import and export between the EU and other countries without any problems. This service facilitates the transition to brexit. In addition, all our newly purchased wooden pallets also comply with ISPM 15.

Are you a CHEP customer?

We ask our customers to communicate their expected impact of Brexit to us as soon as possible, so that we can prepare ourselves to make sure we can prepare to keep on giving you the best possible service.
