Does your company ship product out of the country? If yes, you may be aware that wood packaging material is not permitted to leave our borders without first meeting the requirements set forth by the ALSC. At CALco, we operate a state of the art heat treating chamber that meets ISPM-15 standards.

This regulation was put in place to reduce the risk of introduction and spread of quarantine pests associated with the movement in international trade of wood packaging material made from raw wood. The high temperature used in heat treating destroys insects and larvae and reduces the moisture content.
