Are there any countries where wood packaging fumigated with methyl bromide is not welcome?

In its proposed regulation, China is requiring that coniferous (softwood) wood packaging material coming from countries or regions where pinewood nematode occurs must be heat treated. China will accept other IPPC approved treatment methods from areas where the pinewood nematode has not been a problem. If this provision is part of Chinas final rule, solid wood packaging material coming from the United States and Canada would have to be heat treated not fumigated. The Republic of Korea has a similar requirement in its draft standard.
