Exporters can also check with the plant health authority in the destination country to verify what the requirements are for solid wood packaging.  Even if your destination country does not require ISPM 15 wood packaging, it is a recommended practice that any wood packaging moving through international borders be certified ISPM 15 compliant to avoid potential issues at the port.

You can also check the USDA APHIS website for additional information.
