Webinar: Understanding ISPM 15 to Reduce the Risk of Pests in Wood Packaging
December 21, 2022 @ 1:00 pm CDT
Presented by: Brad Gething, Vice President of Science and Technology, National Wooden Pallet and Container Association
ISPM 15 was fully implemented in the United States in 2006 to reduce the risk and spread of quarantine pests associated with wood packaging. This session will review the ISPM 15 program and how it has evolved to successfully achieve its goal, and where there are efforts of continuous improvement so that wood packaging can be used effectively and safely to facilitate safe trade.
