The unauthorized and/or fraudulent use of the TP IPPC mark is illegal and a situation we take seriously. Anyone with information regarding the misuse of IPPC marks should contact TP's WPM Manager immediately. Thank you for helping to protect the integrity of the ISPM 15 program which is vital to our business and economy.
Wisdom From Our Founding Fathers - Thomas Paine
"The real man smiles in trouble, gathers strength from distress, and grows brave by reflection."
"Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it."
"Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one."
"To argue with a man who has renounced the use and authority of reason, is like administering medicine to the dead."
"Character is much easier kept than recovered."
"A long habit of not thinking a thing wrong gives it a superficial appearance of being right."
"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them."
"Every science has for its basis a system of principles as fixed and unalterable as those by which the universe is regulated and governed. Man cannot make principles; he can only discover them."
