ISPM15 Heat Treatment - Heat Treated Pallets
Giffords Recycling Ltd is fully accredited to supply ISPM-15 Heat Treated Pallets world-wide. Specially licensed by the forestry commission, this heat treatment process can be used for all standard and bespoke wooden products. All Giffords wooden pallets carry the stamp of approval from the Forestry Commission and Giffords are one of the first recycling companies to operate this system. Giffords heat treatment kills all wood pests and eliminates the export of these pests to other countries - therefore protecting the environment and the world's valuable forestry resources.
Heat Treated Pallets
Timber pallets & packaging are subject to plant health controls when crossing international borders, often resulting in costly and frustrating delays whilst checks are carried out. This is where ISPM15 comes in. It is now the internationally agreed standard for the treatment of all forms of packaging made from solid wood. It helps protect the world's forests from disease and trade from costly delays.

ISPM15 and the associated heat treatment certification is a world-wide passport for all wooden packaging. ISPM meaning - International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures.

All types of wooden packaging for
export must be heat treated.
On completion of the heat treatment
process, the wooden packaging is
marked to show that the necessary
treatment has taken place. This mark
shows the Country of origin code -
GB, Giffords Unique Registration
Number - FC0370, The Heat Treatment
Approved Measure Code - HT and
finally the IPPC Logo (as shown in
the photograph opposite). The heat
treatment certification gives
total traceability back to the heat
treatment source.

Giffords Recycling Limited is fully
accredited and audited by the Forestry
Commission to supply ISPM-15
Heat Treated Pallets.
