CP Pallet system

CP Pallet system

The CP Pallet system was started up in the early 90s by the German VCI.  
In 1993, PlasticsEurope took over from VCI the management of the CP Pallet scheme. PlasticsEurope’s experts have developed very detailed guidelines related to the size, quality of materials and marking: 5 types of pallets (CP1 to CP5) are for the chemical industry and 4 types (CP6 to CP9) for the polymer industry. In 2013, the management of the CP Pallets has been transferred to PlasticsEurope Services sprl in Brussels. 


Marking 

Marking of CP Pallets on the middle block on both side of the pallet allows their identification:
  • type of pallets from CP1 to CP9
  • manufacturer code
  • manufacturing period (month/year)
