BREXIT and the ISPM 15 directive for wooden packaging: What about your exports from the EU to the UK?

After brexit, the ISPM 15 directive for wooden packaging also applies to exports from the EU to the UK. What do you need to do?

What is ISPM 15 about?  

In order to prevent the worldwide spread of living harmful organisms through wooden packaging material, this material has to comply with the International Phytosanitary Measure 15 - or ISPM 15 for short. Wood used for packing cargo for international transport, or for stowing (securing) the cargo, for example in containers, must be phytosanitary treated and marked. This prevents harmful organisms, such as bugs and beetles, from hitching a ride on pallets, crates or dunnage.

What does Brexit change about ISPM 15, and what does this mean for me?

For trade with countries outside the European Union, ISPM 15 is in force.  As a result of the Brexit the UK is no longer part of the EU. So as from 01/01/2021, packing wood and dunnage used in trade between EU countries and the UK must be in accordance with ISPM15. And so be marked with the IPPC mark that confirms this. 

If your cargo in wooden packaging does not comply with ISPM 15, it can be blocked and even returned during inspection by customs. With delays and extra costs for you.

What should you do to prevent blocking by customs due to ISPM 15?

Make sure that your wooden packaging, pallets and dunnage are ISPM 15 compliant. And that this is clearly and correctly indicated on the packaging (by the IPPC mark with the identification of the license holder). You can complement this with an ISPM 15 certificate that you attach to the shipping documents.

What can DEUFOL do for you?

As an international packaging company, DEUFOL is ISPM 15 certified. All Deufol sites that pack goods for export, in Belgium and worldwide, have an ISPM 15 permit with the accompanying internationally known permit number. We place this on all the wooden packaging we produce. 

The ISPM 15 licence numbers for Deufol in Belgium and France:

This way we do not only ensure the perfect packaging for your product. We also work to prevent it from being blocked during a customs inspection for ISPM 15.

Customs controls can sometimes be unexpected and incomprehensibly strict. For customers who want even more security, Deufol has created the ConPLY packaging range.
