Brexit and exporting pallets

Brexit brings many changes to the European Union Member States’ trade relations with the United Kingdom from 1 January 2021. Brexit will have major implications for both imports and exports to and from the United Kingdom.

From 2021, wooden packaging, including pallets and europallets, must comply with the International Standards For Phytosanitary Measures ISPM15. In short, heat treatment of wood prevents the spread of harmful organisms, according to international regulations for the import of wood packaging materials. This means, all packaging must be marked in accordance with international standards. This marking allows a quick check in a computerized system that the tree meets the relevant requirements.

Here are some commonly used pallet recommendations that are widely accepted by companies in England and abroad.
