Wood packaging material


Wood used as packaging or dunnage material for food or non-food products is considered a plant product.

This concerns solid wood of a thickness equal or greater than six mm and not chipboard.

Obligations and controls

The European Union (EU) adheres to ISPM 15 for all packagings made of wood.

All companies exporting their products using wood packaging (for example pallets) must use treated and debarked wood. They must treat it themselves or purchase it from authorized companies.

In Luxembourg, companies treating their wood packaging material themselves are inspected and approved by the Administration of Agricultural Technical Services (ASTA).

Certain wood packaging materials must be pre-notified in TRACES.NT and subject to phytosanitary controls by the ASTA when they are imported

Related documents

Wood packaging material processed according to ISPM 15 bears the IPPC seal, that contains a unique code for each company and thus replaces the plant passport for intra-community transport and the phytosanitary certificate for export. It also indicates the manner in which the wood was treated (for example HT = Heat Treatment).

This seal must meet the following requirements:

  • be durable and non-transferable
  • be visibly positioned, preferably on two opposite sides of the certified object
  • the use of the colors red and orange must be avoided because these colors are used to mark dangerous products 
  • wood pallets must be re-certified or re-marked if they are reused, recycled or repaired. All elements of such a pallet must be treated as specified
  • shippers should be invited to use wood that is compliant and marked
  • the marking must only be destroyable by total combustion.

The following companies are registered to handle Wood according to the ISPM 15 norm.
