ISPM 15 Countries



ISPM-15 Implementation Date: November 1, 2004

Additions to ISPM-15: None

Notes: Although not directly affecting WPM, India has begun requiring imported pine lumber to be heat treated to a core temperature of 56 degrees Celsius for 30 minutes. This requirement will commence on November 1, 2006.

India will accept a phytosanitary certificate in lieu of the official ISPM-15 mark. However, for US exporters, it is against APHIS policy to issue a phytosanitary certificate for WPM used in transport of commodities.
