PLIB Response:

The “West Indies” covers many different islands.  Some of them require ISPM 15 certification for wood packaging while others do not show up on the list of countries that require it.  Cuba, Jamaica and Trinidad/Tobago are three countries that are listed as requiring ISPM 15 certification.  Consider having your wood packaging ISPM 15 certified and labeled as such if you are shipping to the “West Indies” just to be safe.
