The hottest wood packaging also has quality hidden

Wood packaging also has potential quality hazards

not long ago, a company in Shenzhen had a very sad and urgent thing. The steel cable of a container exported to Canada did not have IPPC marks because several small wooden boards used to carry the goods were not marked. As a result, when the goods arrived at the Canadian port, the Canadian quarantine department ordered all the goods with wood packaging to be transported out of the country on the grounds that the wood packaging did not have IPPC marks. After tossing back and forth for nearly four months, this batch of cables returned to the starting point, plastic deformation - characterized by irreversible, mechanism is slip and twinning, not only the business failed, but also the freight, insurance and other expenses lost nearly 100000 yuan

ignore the overall situation of minor losses

ippc is the abbreviation of the International Plant Protection Convention. Wood packaging with IPPC logo can be exempted from plant inspection and quarantine in the importing country, speed up customs clearance and reduce costs. However, many enterprises lack quarantine awareness and have no intention or intention to escape inspection and quarantine supervision, so they have suffered economic losses

the lack of quarantine awareness has taught a deeper lesson to an automotive glass company in Shenzhen. Considering that automobile glass needs a lot of wood packaging to fix and package, in order to facilitate the customs clearance of goods, Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau specially sent experts to assist the company in establishing a wood packaging heat treatment warehouse in the plant and trained a number of technicians in accordance with relevant international standards and the requirements of the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China. With the assistance of Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau, the company's qualification for heat treatment of wood packaging has successfully passed the review of the General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China and obtained international recognition. It has the right to apply IPPC marks on heat treated wood packaging

unfortunately, the quarantine awareness of a person in charge of the company is weak. He believes that small wooden boards are worthless and it doesn't matter whether they are treated or not. Without authorization, he instructed workers to apply IPPC marks to wooden packages that have not been heat treated, and used to pack automotive glass in more than 600 containers. As a result, the car glass of more than 600 containers sailed across the sea to the United States. The inspection and Quarantine Department of the U.S. port found live pests on the wooden packaging, so it ordered all the goods to be returned out of the country. Extruded polystyrene foam for thermal insulation gb/t10801.2 (2) 002 the company suffered heavy losses. The direct economic costs such as freight and insurance alone amounted to more than 50 million yuan, and the delivery time was delayed for several months

the unruly behavior of individual enterprises has affected China's overall foreign trade. Since the living pest Anoplophora glabripennis was found in the wooden packaging used in the stone exported by China to the European Union by many of its Member States, the European Union decided to implement plant inspection and Quarantine on all stones and similar goods from China from April 1 this year. The measures aimed at China will inevitably slow down the customs clearance time of such goods and increase the customs clearance costs

in terms of import, violations of wood packaging are also very serious. Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau often finds that wooden packages are not marked with IPPC, and live pests are detected in those with IPPC. In accordance with the relevant laws and regulations of China, Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau will quarantine, destroy or return these unqualified wooden packages, and resolutely punish those who have made false or concealed reports

small wooden boards also have international standards

wooden packaging refers to wooden boxes, wooden crates, wooden pallets, wooden frames, barrels, wooden boards, wooden shafts, wooden wedges, skids, sleepers and liners used to pack or reinforce goods. Wooden packaging is closely related to international trade. Relevant research shows that due to the advantages of wood packaging in earthquake resistance, corrosion prevention, bearing capacity, convenient loading and unloading, reusable and other aspects, about 70% of the goods in the international trade in goods are packed with wood. Especially for machinery, ceramics, stone, etc., wood packaging is essential. In 2012, Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau accepted a total of nearly 200000 batches of wood packaging for inspection of imported goods, about 4million pieces, which shows the importance of the role of wood packaging in the transportation of goods in international trade

the raw materials of wood packaging come from trees. One of its major shortcomings is that it is easy to carry plant pests for long-distance cross-border transmission and diffusion, threatening the plant growth and ecological security of importing countries. There is a typical example in Shenzhen: Wutong Mountain was originally full of pine trees, but now it is rare. It disappeared in the late 1980s because of the harm of pine wood nematode introduced from wood packaging. Therefore, most countries in the world have listed it as a compulsory quarantine object, requiring to strengthen the quarantine and treatment of wooden packaging ports

since this year, Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau has intercepted 186 batches of harmful organisms such as pine wood nematodes and longicorn beetles from the wooden packaging of imported goods, and has forced relevant enterprises to carry out corresponding quarantine treatment on unqualified wooden packaging according to relevant requirements

in view of the characteristics of wood packaging that is easy to carry pests for long-distance transmission, the food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) adopted a multilateral international agreement on plant protection as early as 1951, and formulated the guidelines for the management of wood packaging materials in international trade (ISPM15 for short), suggesting that all countries or regions adopt unified measures for the management of wood packaging, that is, quarantine treatment of wood packaging in accordance with ISPM15 standards before export, And apply IPPC logo

since April 16, 2003, more than 30 countries and regions in Europe, the United States and Japan have successively adopted this international standard. China has implemented it since July 1st, 2009

trade risks are not difficult to resolve

compared with the risks of exchange rate, payment, political situation and so on, the trade risks caused by wood packaging are often easy to be ignored

in fact, as long as there is quarantine awareness, it is not difficult to resolve the risks of international trade in goods brought by wood packaging. Zhouxiaohong, President of Shenzhen wood packaging heat treatment enterprise association, said. At present, 36 wood packaging heat treatment enterprises in Shenzhen have been accepted by the inspection and quarantine department. The General Administration of quality supervision, inspection and Quarantine of the people's Republic of China has impartially added one or more alloy components such as Nb, Mo and w to foreign countries, and obtained the internationally accepted qualification for IPPC marking. It has formed a mature auxiliary industry to serve foreign trade enterprises in Shenzhen and surrounding areas

Zhou Xiaohong said that purchasing wood packaging that meets international standards from qualified wood packaging heat treatment enterprises is only about 30% more expensive than ordinary wood packaging. A container costs only twoorthree yuan more to avoid the trade risks caused by wood packaging problems and ensure the smooth customs clearance of goods in the importing country

after the financial crisis, importers in Europe and the United States are very sensitive to commodity quotation and cost. More and more merchants adopt DDP quotation, that is, the seller completes import customs clearance at the designated destination, and delivers the goods that have not been unloaded on the means of delivery to the buyer to complete delivery. This means that the seller must bear all risks and expenses from shipping, customs declaration in the importing country to the designated destination, including the above quarantine risks. To this end, the person in charge of Shenzhen Inspection and Quarantine Bureau reminded the relevant import enterprises to enhance their awareness of self-defense, and when signing trade contracts with foreign investors, they should clearly indicate the requirements for inspection and quarantine and disinfestation treatment of wooden packaging on April 29 this year, and agree on the corresponding breach clauses. At the same time, timely understand the relevant foreign regulations on wood packaging, and timely consult the local inspection and quarantine department if not clear, so as to avoid unconscious violations
