AQIS ISPM 15 Wood Packaging - some important requirements
  As 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 - ISPM 15 treated packaging will NOT require a treatment certificate - provided the packing declaration indicates ISPM 15 compliance and freedom from bark - will NOT need to satisfy the 21 day rule - there is at present no limitation on time between treatment and shipping but this may be reviewed and changed by AQIS in the short-term.
The ISPM 15 declaration contains a letterhead or company stamp - date or vessel/voyage reference - consignment identifier or numerical ink - straw declaration - timber declaration - bark declaration if required - a signature - and a new question 2b asks if all solid timber packing in the consignment has been marked with ISPM 15 compliant stamps - if YES a proper treatment has been performed on the packing - if NO - consignments must be accompanied by a proper treatment certificate or directed for AQIS inspection - a NO response means some or all of packaging is not marked with the ISPM 15 stamp.
All other packaging is subject to existing AQIS requirements and approved treatments - for further information on these requirements go to Cargo Containers - Quarantine Aspects and Procedures
