ISPM 15 is an International Phytosanitary Measure developed by the IPPC that directly addresses the need to treat wood materials of a thickness greater than 6mm, used to ship products between countries. It affects all wood packaging material (pallets, crates, dunnages, etc) requiring that they be treated with heat or fumigated with methyl bromide and marked, often branded, with a seal of compliance. This seal of compliance is colloquially known as the "bug stamp." Products exempt from the ISPM 15 are made from alternative material, like paper, plastic or manufactured wood products (eg. plywood)
