What is a Heat Treated Pallet? Heat treated pallets are often referred to as HT pallets, yet the concept remains the same: Heat treatment is a method of sterilizing the wood to remove all hazardous materials, thereby making the pallets safer and better suited for shipment. The process involves heating the pallet to a minimum core temperature of 56°C (132.8 °F) for at least 30 minutes.
ISPM 15 Wood Pallets
HT pallets are regulated by the International Standards for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM 15), which requires that the wood utilized for pallets is debarked, heat treated and stamped with a mark of compliance. The ISPM 15 standards have been adopted by all U.S. trading partners, incorporated into U.S. and Canadian regulations since 2012.
