It is an international standard for phytosanitary measures that must be implemented in order to reduce the spread of harmful organisms when transporting goods from one continent to another. This standard is to be applied to raw wood packaging, more than 6 mm thick, intended for export outside the EU. This standard requires that the wood used for pallets and packaging be subjected to a high temperature (HT) treatment, which involves heating the core of the wood to 56 °C for 30 minutes. Packaging that meets the requirements of the standard must be indelibly marked with the logo in the shape of an ear of corn. The sender is required to make sure that the packaging used is in compliance with this standard.
