As of April 28 2015, the company Aschieri - De Pietri Srl has obtained the FSC certification with reference to the production of FSC 100%. certified wooden pallets packaging.

The FSC® marking ensures that processed products come from well managed forests, which translates into environmental, social and economic benefits in accordance with the most stringent environmental standard. Indipendent certification bodies carry out the forest management and chain of custody assessment. This leads to certify that the forest of origin has been monitored in accordance with all relevant FSC standards and requirements (best practices for forest management), as set out and approved by the Forest Stewardship Council® a.c. Likewise, it implies the involvment and approval of all the stakeholders.
FSC is a global, not-for-profit, indipendent organization. Their members include some of the world's leading environmental NGO's, businesses and social organizations as well as forest owners and managers, processing companies, indigenous communities, scientists, specialized staff all cooperating to implement the highest standards of forest management which are environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable.

In recent years, the globalisation of world markets has  dramatically increased international trade traffic.  
Wood packaging materials may convey and release pest spreading agents. Stringent phytosanitary measures  have been developed in order to limit and  prevent the international transport and spread of disease and insects that could negatively affect plants or ecosystems.

Applied phytosanitary measures as follows:

  • ban on imports  (ensuring the highest possible phytosanitary safety, yet it could also lead to trading blocs wordwide),
  • requirement of specific phytosanitary measures (pest free area),
  • request of the phytosanitary certification  (as issued by the NPPO),
  • inspection at entry (which implies a significant outflow of resources to properly carry out inspections),
  • treatment prior to shipping.

Treatment prior to shipping represents the phytosanitary measure required by the IPPC standard and is the basis of the ISPM-15 International Standard.
Briefly, said standard requires for all raw wood packaging materials to undergo specific treatment (namely, heat treatment- HT) to be then certified accondingly by the IPPC/FAO marking. Said mark shall be adequately monitored by a certification system applied by the wood packaging and treatment business sector.
