    ISPM 15. Regulation of wood packaging material in international trade
    Adopted 2018
    This standard describes phytosanitary measures that 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. Wood packaging material covered by this standard includes dunnage but excludes wood packaging made from wood processed in such a way that it is free from pests (e.g. plywood). The phytosanitary measures described in this standard are not intended to provide ongoing protection from contaminating pests or other organisms.

    This guide provides comprehensive, yet easy to understand, information to improve the understanding of International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) No. 15 (Regulation of wood packaging material in international trade). It provides practical guidance to help national plant protection organizations apply the phytosanitary measures that are currently approved in ISPM 15 and describes the procedures required to produce compliant wood packaging material. The guide is also expected to be relevant to ISPM 15 treatment providers, wood packaging material manufacturers, repairers and remanufacturers, and other stakeholders, to help them to improve compliance with ISPM 15 and reduce the incidence of quarantine pests. The guide provides information on approved treatment options for wood packaging material, applying the ISPM 15 mark, manufacturing, repairing and reusing wood packaging material, import-inspection procedures, and phytosanitary actions in response to ISPM 15 non-compliance. It also includes several case studies that highlight the diverse ways that countries have approached some of the challenges associated with implementing ISPM 15.

    International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides - old version
    Revised Version - 2003
    The International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides is the worldwide guidance document on pesticide management for all public and private entities engaged in, or associated with, the distribution and use of pesticides. It was adopted for the first time in 1985 by the Twenty-Fifth Session of the FAO Conference. The code is designed to provide standards of conduct and to serve as a point of reference in relation to sound pesticide management practices, in particular for gov ernment authorities and the pesticide industry. Following the adoption of the Rotterdam Convention in 1998 and in view of the changing international policy framework, as well as the persistence of certain pesticide management problems, particularly in developing countries, in 1999 FAO initiated the update and revision process of the Code. In November 2002, the Hundred and Twenty-Third Session of the FAO Council (with the authorization of the Thirty-First Session of the FAO Conference) approved t he revised version of the International Code of Conduct on the Distribution and Use of Pesticides by Council Resolution 1/123. This publication contains the revised version of the code.
