As from April 2013, the European Commission has authorized enhanced phytosanitary import checks of wood packaging material in association with specific commodities, notably stone products originating in China.
Inspections are focused on the presence of a correct IPPC mark and live insects.
These measures have been taken following repeated interceptions of Anoplophora glabripennis (Asian longhorned beetle). Outbreaks of this harmful organism have been detected in several Member States of the European Union (EU) and have been eradicated at high costs.
