This is an abbreviation for The International Standard for Phytosanitary Measures Number 15 which is a standard that covers the treatment of wood based materials.

As part of this standard wood based containers used in shipping are covered such as pallets, stands and crates. If the thickness of the wooden material is more than 6mm, treatment is required to prevent the spread of any pests or disease. This involves the removal of bark, heating and fumigating. Once completed a stamp or brand is applied to indicate that this has been carried out to the ISPM15 requirements.
