How long will the certification last for wood I just received from fumigation before it needs recertification? I was told there is a time limit but I can't locate this information.

This was taken right off the USDA website regarding ISPM#15

Is there an expiration date once my WPM has been either heat treated or fumigated?
The intent of the ISPM15 standard is that once the WPM is treated and officially marked the treatment does not expire. Thus, you can reuse WPM without requiring retreatment and remarking.

WPM that has been repaired or recycled is required to be either fumigated or heat treated again. The old mark is required to be obliterated with a new mark applied by one of the inspection agencies.
