  • Newly produced or reconditioned CPs must to be marked with the registration No.
  • The allocation of the registration number implies compliance with the specifications and if required that the used CPs are collected according to the CP specification.

  • When requested, the registered CP supplier shall offer to the owners of used CPs the free collection of pallets up to at least 50 km from his facilities and shall respect the lead times mentioned in the table below.
Number of Pallets Maximal Lead time for collection
> 400 2 Weeks
100 - 400 4 Weeks
20 - 100 3 Months
No free collection has to be offered if:

  • More than 10 % of the pallets have unacceptable deficiencies
  • Less than 20 pallets are offered; they shall be accepted without costs when delivered to the registered supplier/reconditioner or collected after payment of transport costs.
No collection shall be offered for pallets manufactured without respect of the manufacturing specifications (poor timber quality, wrong dimensions, missing manufacturing markings etc.) or for pallets contaminated with chemical products.
