Materials: 15 boards of quality timber, 9 woodchip or solid wood blocks, 81 nails. Produced according to the EPAL Technical Regulations.
You can easily recognize the original EPAL CP pallet and distinguish it from imitations and replicas by its idiosyncratic markings:
The right corner block bears the EPAL logo, placed in an oval. The left corner block contains the IPPC branded marking in accordance with national plant protection rules, country code, registration number of the responsible Plant Protection Authority, method of treatment (heat treatment). The central block contains the CP type marking and the EPAL identification number (license number - year - month), as well as the control staple, which is blue or black in color.
All members of EPAL - the European Pallet Association - are subject to inspection and control by an independent international auditing firm. This is the only way EPAL can guarantee the consistently high quality they offer to the markets.
Compliance with the ISPM 15 standard is the most essential condition for the unrestricted use of pallets in the international movement of goods. Therefore, all EPAL Euro Pallets are manufactured in accordance with the strict IPPC specifications and can thus be transported worldwide. Local Plant Protection Authorities provide information on the countries that recognize the IPPC standard.
