The Canadian Heat Treated Wood Products Certification Program (HT Program) is an official certification system for the export of wood products to countries requiring heat treatment prior to entry, including member countries of the European Union, Mexico and the Republic of Korea. The HT program is also the basis of the manufacture of certified wood packaging in accordance with ISPM 15 Regulation of wood packaging material in international trade.
