Chile WPM Requirements

Chile has adopted measures in line with ISPM15 for wood packaging material (WPM). At present Chile will require wood packaging to be debarked. Chile began enforcement June 1, 2005. Please note while Chile will accept a phytosanitary certificate in lieu of the official mark under ISPM15, it is against APHIS policy to issue a phytosanitary certificate for wood packaging used in the transport of commodities.

For questions pertaining to treatment and marking of WPM under the Heat Treatment and fumigation programs contact the American Lumber Standard Committee (ALSC) at 301-972-1700 or one of the accredited agencies listed at the ALSC website. Questions pertaining to where HT lumber may be purchased, how to become certified, costs pertaining to enrollment, required marks etc. may be directed to the ALSC or any of the inspection agencies.
