What is IPPC stamped wood?

IPPC stamped wood is a standard of wood developed by the International Plant Protection Convention for shipping internationally. In order to ship internationally with custom crating made out of non-engineered wood products, the wood needs to be treated with heat or fumigation. Once the proper treatment is in place, the crates will need to be stamped with the IPPC symbol if they are to be shipped across borders. The purpose of the treatment is to eliminate any living organisms in the wood that could be accidentally shipped within the wood in the transportation process.
