Germany has based the implementation of the International Phytosanitary Standard No 15 on Wood Packaging Material on wood packaging material on the relevant requirements laid down in the German Plant Inspection Order. The binding legal basis for EU Member States implementing the requirements for the introduction of wood packaging material is Council Directive 2000/29/EC. In addition, a national guideline with detailed provisions for the implementation of the standard is applicable.
The list of the authorized wood packaging manufacturers and treatment companies in Germany can be found here. Further information about the registered companies is available through the relevant contact at JKI.
