Supply chain certainty

The UK has officially left the EU as of 31st January 2020. Following the transition period a formal trade agreement has been reached. ISPM15 compliance is now a legal requirement for WPM travelling between the UK and EU, in both directions. 

With CHEP’s superior scale and depth of expertise, we are well positioned to support customers with the current requirements.

Ensuring ISPM15 compliance

From January 1st, 2021, the UK became a “third country” to the EU. Therefore, it is now a legal requirement for all wood packaging material moving in both directions between UK and the EU to be compliant with International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM15). This is a global regulation intended to prevent the spread of plant diseases and pests through wooden packaging materials by requiring them to be heat-treated (HT) and marked. 

We have been working closely with National Plant Protection Organizations (NAPPOs who are the domestic custodians of ISPM15) such as TIMCOM and the Forestry Commission (in the UK) to ensure our processes are audited and compliant to the local ISPM15 guidelines.  

We also have all the necessary processes and Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in place at our EU and UK facilities in order to adequately segregate and generate ISPM15 compliant pallets.
