International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM 15), the new global standard for Phytosanitary Measures in respect of Wooden Packaging, were introduced in March 2002, in order to end the worldwide trade impediments due to a maze of import restrictions for wooden packaging.

ISPM 15 stipulates, among other things, that wooden packaging must be treated to prevent the spread of vermin (including chus xylophilus and sirex wasps).
