ISPM 15 Treated Wood Packaging

AQIS has issued the following guidelines for the Australian implementation of ISPM15. From 1st September 2004, AQIS will accept solid timber packaging and dunnage compliant with ISPM 15 in addition to packaging which meets existing AQIS requirements. Solid wood packaging excludes packaging made entirely from composite boards, plywood, and medium density fibre board. Please see AQIS's ICON database for import conditions for these products. For AQIS purposes, ISPM 15 treated packaging (1) Will NOT require a treatment certificate, provided the packing declaration indicates ISPM 15 compliance and freedom from bark (2) Will NOT need to satisfy the 21 day rule. There is no limitation on time between treatment and shipping this may be reviewed / changed by AQIS) and (3) Will be considered acceptable under existing AQIS Compliance Agreement arrangements.
For AQIS, the packing declaration is an essential quarantine risk management tool as it identifies if ISPM 15 compliant wood packaging has been used within a consignment. In order for a packing declaration to be acceptable it must contain (1) Letterhead or company stamp (2) Date or vessel/voyage reference (3) consignment identifier or numerical ink (4) Straw declaration (5) Timber declaration and bark declaration where required, and (6) Signature.
The revised packing declaration includes a new question relating to timber packaging. Question 2b asks if all solid timber packing in the consignment has been marked with ISPM 15 compliant stamps. If YES, an acceptable treatment has been performed on the packing, and if NO, consignments must be accompanied either by an acceptable treatment certificate or directed for AQIS inspection (a no response means that some or all of the packing is not marked with the ISPM 15 stamp).
All other packaging is subject to existing AQIS requirements and approved treatments. Further information on these requirements can be found on Cargo Containers: Quarantine aspects and procedures.
