The exporter and importer will have to inform the existence, or its lack, of Wooden Packing Crates on the Shipping Instructions (SI) form, following the format below:

  • Wooden Packing Crate: Treated and Certified (the material has been treated and or fumigated and has been certified as such).
  • Wooden Packing Crate: Processed (processed material).
  • Wooden Packing Crate: Not Treated nor Certified as such (the material hasn't been treated and or fumigated thus it isn't certified).
  • Wooden Packing Crate: Not Applicable (the packing material isn't composed of wood).

The Exporting/Importing Agent will be HELD responsible for any penalties related to non-compliance of the regulations (i.e.: returning the cargo or the wood that composed the condemned shipping crate).
