Wood Packaging Material (WPM)
Washington, June 29, 2006 - The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service in
cooperation with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will begin
enforcing the third and final phase of the wood packaging material (WPM) regulation on July 5. All WPM, such
as pallets, crates, boxes and pieces of wood used to support or brace cargo, must meet import requirements and
be free of timber pests before entering or transiting through the United States.
All WPM entering or transiting through the United States must be either heat treated or fumigated with methyl
bromide as outlined in the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures: Guidelines for Regulating Wood
Packaging Material in International Trade (ISPM 15). The WPM must also be marked with an approved
international logo, certifying it has been appropriately treated.
The rule requires regulated WPM to be marked in a visible location on each article, preferably on at
least two opposite sides of the article, with a legible and permanent mark that indicates that the article
meets the requirements of the regulation. Paper treatment certificates will no longer be required or
accepted. An example of an acceptable WPM mark is:




APHIS and CBP will require the immediate re-exportation of any unmarked WPM, as it is not in compliance with
the ISPM 15 treatment and marking standard. APHIS and CBP will also require the immediate reexportation of
any marked WPM that is found to be infested with a live wood-boring pest of the families Cerambycidae
(longhorned beetle), Buprestidae (wood-boring beetles), Siricidae (woodwasps), Cossidae (carpenter moth),
Curculionidae (weevils), Platypodidae (ambrosia beetles), Sesiidae (clearwing moths) and Scolytidae (bark
beetles).
Shipments containing WPM that violate the rule may be allowed entry only if the CBP port director determines
that it is feasible to separate the cargo from the noncompliant WPM. An arrangement to have the noncompliant
WPM exported from the United States is required before the cargo can be released to the consignee. All costs
associated with the re-exportation are the responsibility of the importer or party of interest.
The first phase of this regulation became effective Sept. 16, 2005. The regulations are based on the International
Plant Protection Convention standards for WPM, which prescribe globally accepted measures to reduce the risk
of forest pest introductions via WPM. The United States is one of many countries that have adopted the
international standards.
For any questions or concerns regarding the requirements for WPM, please visit the APHIS Web site at
http://www.aphis.usda.gov/ppq/wpm/import.html or call APHIS' toll-free number at (866) 738-8197. International
callers who may not have access to the toll-free number may call (301) 734-5346.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is the unified border agency within the Department of Homeland
Security charged with the management, control, and protection of our Nation's borders at and between
the official ports of entry. CBP is charged with keeping terrorists and terrorist weapons out of the
country while enforcing hundreds of U.S. laws.
