Shipment to Las Palmas or Santa Cruz: new regulations for wooden packaging


21 Mar 2019

Canary Islands

As from April 11th 2019, all packaging timber – including pallets – must be treated and marked in accordance with the ISPM 15 requirement.
This is required for all shipments to the Canary Islands with harbours like Las Palmas or Santra Cruz.

The next official IPPC mark must be clearly visible with the following information:

XX                  ISO code of the country of manufacture

000                Unique manufacturer’s code

YY                  Treatment code (HT, DH, MB)

If the shipment does not meet up to this new regulation, this can lead to delays, fines and destruction of the goods.
