1. Fumigation with Methyl Bromide @ 48gm/cum with exposure for 24 hrs
2. Heat treatment with core temperature at 56°C for half hour

• ISPM15 standard is mandatory nowadays for shipping company using wood packaging

• Heat treatment is the most widely used method to comply with ISPM-15 norms, as no chemical is involved in this process

• Major advantage of heat treatment is that it reduces the moisture content of the wood considerably which in turn makes the wood less prone to microbial infestations like fungus and mould (commonly blue stained and mould or decay fungi found in India)

• Processing marking shall be affixed to each product of packaging, which proves that the wood has undergone heat treatment and within 30 minutes was heated at a temperature of 56 ° C

• If the packing material was not prepared by heat treatment, the problems with cargo during transport may arise and most of the times goods will be returned

• One of the main benefit of heat treatment over fumigation is that heat treatment is an eco-friendly method with least detrimental effect on the environment, especially during current environmental concerns in the international community
