Timber Export Inspections

The specialist IVS team of registered timber inspectors assist customers nationwide.

The export inspection of timber products is undertaken by registered inspectors in the timber yard or on the wharf prior to loading. This is a full phytosanitary inspection of all sides of timber products carried out according to the Importing Countries Phytosanitary Requirements (ICPR), to check for various forms of fungi, insect damage and other contaminants. This process may require inspection of individual pieces of timber and if the timber is already packaged, then the customer will need to ensure there are facilities on-site to re-package and re-strap inspected timber.

A timber inspection report is completed and supplied to the customer to confirm the consignment is compliant with all exporting requirements.
