Requirements for Wooden Packaging Materials
The government of the People's Republic of China established requirements concerning the importation of coniferous solid wood packing material. This was in response to China's desire to prevent the introduction of exotic pests, especially the pinewood nematode. APHIS, the US governmental agency charged with implementing these requirements created a certificate to allow the exporter of goods to attest to the fact that coniferous material had been heat treated by being subject to a minimum core temperature of 56°C for 30 minutes.
International packing and crating shipments not meeting these requirements may be quarantined or rejected by the government of China, upon arrival. We can manufacture your pallets to meet the APHIS requirements for shipment of goods to the People's Republic Of China.
