Fumigation Certificate

  • What exactly is fumigation?

Fumigation is a pesticide treatment that employs fumes to eliminate bugs that dwell within the wood. It is necessary to safeguard the ecosystems of delivery nations from multinational pests that may be present in shipping lumber or wood.

  • When is fumigation necessary?

Fumigation is required for all solid wood getting shipped abroad. It consists of wooden pallets, furniture, and other wooden items. It is not, however, essential for wood-derived materials such as cardboard, particleboard, and other man-made wood derivatives. A fumigation license must include information such as treating diseases, fumigants employed, usage duration, and operating temperatures during the spraying procedure.
Logistics companies select plastic packaging methods over wood to eliminate the requirement for infection.

  • Why is the Fumigation Certificate Required?
In 2002, the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM 15) were created to regulate plant protection measures for timber containers. Earlier, world trade was limited by a complex set of prohibitions imposed by many agencies. ISPM 15 measures establish a standard that all exporters must follow in order to avoid the transmission of pests by sanitizing all wooden shipping.

Cargoes are not allowed to be imported into some countries without a fumigation certificate, of concern that hazardous insects, bacteria, or disease will impair their living environment. However, fumigation certificates are not always required. Some countries that need this certification are the US, China, India, and others.
In some shipments, Daiwa Lance uses the wooden bar to separate among layers of bundles as in the below photos. In those cases, fumigation is required to meet the needs of importing countries.
