The Australian Wood Packaging Scheme (AWPCS)

​​​​​Department of Agriculture and Water Resources, January 2019​

In recognition of the plant health risk associated with wood packaging the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) has adopted a wood packaging standard: International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures - Guidelines for Regulating ​Wood Packaging in International Trade (ISPM 15). This standard aims to significantly lessen the risk of unprocessed raw wood being used as a pathway for the introduction and the spread of most quarantine pests and diseases through international trade. As a signatory to the IPPC, Australia is obliged to implement this standard.​
