Avoid the Blocking of your Cargo with Deufol ConPLY

Posted by John Appel on Tue, Oct 20, 2020

If you regularly ship goods internationally, you probably know the ISPM-15 guideline. The ISPM-15 has been drawn up by the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and describes the treatment of wood used in the international movement of goods with the aim of killing organisms such as parasites in the wood. It mainly applies to means of transport such as transport crates and pallets.

Keep in mind the ISPM-15 directive for export packaging. The more and more focus on ISPM-15 the more (arbitrary) refusals.

Customs are paying more and more attention to the ISPM-15 guidelines.  Sector associations repeatedly report arbitrary refusals to import in certain countries, based on the ISPM-15 standard.  The United States, in particular, is attracting more and more attention in the market.

These refusals can have serious consequences: delays, fines, blocking or even the return of goods.

As an expert in industrial export packaging, Deufol complies with the ISPM-15 directive and is ISPM-15 certified. Our packaging has the ISPM-15 mark indicating our certification. This means that when customs checks are carried out, the packaging is found to comply with ISPM-15 and the cargo will be subject to fewer checks. So less risk of your goods being delayed or even blocked.
