Methyl Bromide Fumigation Program

The National Wood Pallet and Container Association (NWPCA) in coordination with APHIS and the wood packaging industry has developed an official program in order for the NWPCA to implement a quality control program for the official labeling of WPM fumigated with Methyl Bromide in compliance with the ISPM15  standard.

The Methyl Bromide (MB) Fumigation Program is structured much the same as the Heat Treatment (HT) program. The NWPCA administers the fumigation program. Inspection agencies enrolled with the National Wood Pallet and Container Association monitor the fumigation with methyl bromide and treatment marking of WPM in conformance with ISPM15 . The agency quality mark may only be applied on WPM treated by fumigators certified in the program.
