Rod Scott Certification
Rod Scott & Son Pty Ltd are certified under the AWPCS (Australian Wood Packaging
Certification Scheme) to manufacture and supply ISPM No.15 Compliant products for Export use.
The AWPCS is a certification scheme developed by AQIS to ensure that Australian treatment providers
and wood packaging manufacturers produce wood packaging material that meets the requirements of ISPM
15. Under this scheme wood packaging manufacturers and treatment providers who meet the requirements
of ISPM 15 will be authorised by AQIS to apply an internationally recognised mark to wood packaging
‘ISPM 15’ is the International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures Publication No. 15: Guidelines for
Regulating Wood Packaging Material in International Trade. ISPM 15 was developed to address the global
spread of timber pests by regulating the movement of timber packing and dunnage in international trade.
ISPM 15 describes phytosanitary measures to reduce the risk of introduction and/or spread of quarantine
pests associated with solid timber packing material.
The certification scheme applies to organisations that export products or packaging containing coniferous
(softwood) and non-coniferous (hardwood) raw wood packaging material. The standard does not apply to wood
packaging made wholly of wood-based products such as plywood, particle board, oriented strand board,
medium density fibre board or products created using glue, heat and pressure or a combination of these.
Rod Scott & Son Pty Ltd has been listed with the AWPCS since the scheme was introduced in 2005.
