Why call Boone Valley?
Depending on the specific export shipping situation, different forms of the heat treated lumber stamp are required. Not all lumber companies understand the regulations involved in the ISPM-15 agreement. They simply guess. The end result can be your shipment being rejected by an inspector and detained. Boone Valley has many years of experience meeting the various heat treated lumber requirements for customers nationwide. We can help guide you to having the correct stamp on your export shipments.

What is ISPM-15?
ISPM-15 is an agreement between the United States and 133 other countries that requires all wood packaging material (both hardwood and pine) used in exports be heat treated at a core temperature of 56 degrees Celsius for a minimum of 30 minutes. This process eliminates the presence of pests found in wood crating products, and therefore protects crops and forests in other parts of the world.
Once heat treated, the wood packaging is affixed with the IPPC export stamp (see photos) designating readiness for international shipments. Shipments not displaying this stamp may be delayed, refused or destroyed upon reaching the foreign country. Boone Valley is audited and has the authority to use these stamps to mark the heat treated lumber, crates, boxes, and pallets we provide our customers.
